About the conference
The Russian Federation organizes a forum in 2019

Following the success of the international conference «Global Biosecurity Challenges: Problems and Solutions» in 2017, in Sochi, which largely contributed to the adoption of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) work program for the intersessional period, the Russian Federation is organizing this forum in 2019 again.

During two days the delegates will be discussing the current state of global biological security in the context of the BTWC implementation. Among the main topics are the discussion of prospects and areas of joint cooperation in ensuring biological safety, scientific and technical cooperation, exchange of experience on the implementation of the principles of the BTWC, etc.

Participants will also consider problems of scientific and technological achievements related to the Convention and possible mechanisms for monitoring and managing risks in this area.
