The exhibition aimed at enhancing public awareness of the importance of conserving biodiversity, of the threats to biodiversity and demonstrating how the global community is working to ensure its conservation and sustainable use now and in the future. In particular, the exhibition explored the multiple aspects of biodiversity contributing to human well-being and described the direct and indirect factors contributing to biodiversity loss. There was special emphasis on the economic aspects of biodiversity and the links between cultural and biological diversity.
