Mayor Katja Dörner speaks about biodiversity in Bonn

Starting with the World Biodiversity Council IPBES and the United Nations Bonn Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals, many organizations and institutions important for the protection and care of biodiversity are based here. The City of Bonn is actively involved in the many activities ranging from local to global.

Bonn is a founding member of the Global Alliance of Cities and Regions for Biodiversity, and Mayor Katja Dörner is a member of the Advisory Council of Cities to the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Mayor is also committed to biodiversity as a cross-cutting issue through her membership of the Global Executive Committee of ICLEI, the international city network for sustainability.
