ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

Reverse the Red seeks to establish and expand diverse but united species conservation networks worldwide. The Center for Species Survival model works to understand the key networks, stakeholders and conservation efforts nationally; to identify priority gaps in assessments, planning and action needed to save species and to ensure that efforts are connected effectively and have access to the necessary tools, capacity building and resources required to maximize impact.

Strategic species conservation is being taken to a whole new level by the Reverse the Red movement through the creation of an international network of IUCN SSC Centers for Species Survival (CSS). Currently there are 16 Centers worldwide, and two of them are located in South America. The CSS Brazil hosted by Parque das Aves and founded in 2019, and the CSS Argentina hosted by Fundación Teimakèn in 2020.

The objective of this session is to make visible the work carried out by CSS Argentina and CSS Brazil, and how it contributes to the conservation of biodiversity (SDG 15) by accelerating joint actions through alliances with strategic sectors (SDG 17). 

Centers for Species Survival (CSS’s) have the unique ability and capacity to articulate a plurality of actors and different actions. Fostering and promoting the constitution of effective alliances in the public, public-private and civil society spheres, taking advantage of the experience and knowledge of the scientific sector is something that the CSS Argentina and CSS Brazil have been doing and working on and that will be addressed in this session, where we propose to show the role of  both centers as a catalyst  for the promotion of intersectoral alliances for the conservation of biodiversity.
