International Conference on Bioscience and Biotechnology (ICBB-2024) will be the fifth iteration (after ICBB-2016, ICBB-2018, ICBB-2020 and ICBB-2022), to bring together academicians, researchers, policymakers, scholars, biotech startups and students within Nepal and around the globe who are engaged in the field of bioscience and biotechnology. The conference will be held from April 21-24, 2024 in Godawari (Lalitpur), Nepal, where you can experience tradition and culture, along with bold and beautiful nature. The attendees will be delivering oral and poster presentations of their research work during the conference in front of national and international audiences. The theme for ICBB-2024 is “Planetary Health – a local discourse”.
The primary objective of this gathering is to foster a deep understanding of the intricate relationships between human health, ecosystems, climate, and food systems. The local discourse on planetary health in Nepal is highly relevant and was also recently highlighted by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres. During his visit to Nepal in October 2023, the Secretary-General of the United Nations acknowledged Nepal’s commendable efforts in working towards climate action, despite its small and developing status. He highlighted the country’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, attributed to its unique geography. He further emphasized the critical need for international support to assist Nepal in safeguarding both its own future and the global environment, underscoring the importance of collective action in addressing climate-related challenges. Secretary General Gutierrez’s remarks provide a clear snapshot of Nepal’s current status and climate challenges.
