The first International Congress of Biology was held in Belém, Brazil in 1988, organized by Darrell Posey and sponsored by the Goeldi Museum. The event led to the creation of the International Society of Ethnobiology (ISE) and the drafting of the “Declaration of Belém,” a pioneering document that asserted the inextricable connection between traditional populations and biodiversity and contributed to the formulation of article 8j of the Convention on Biological Diversity of 1992.
Considering the 30th anniversary of this landmark event, Belém was chosen to host the XVI Congress of the International Society of Ethnobiology, providing a forum for celebrating three decades of ethnobiological science and reflecting on advances in and new challenges to biodiversity and traditional peoples’ rights. The Goeldi Museum and the Federal University of Pará are organizing the event, which will be held in conjunction with the 12th annual symposium of the Brazilian Society for Ethnobiology and Ethnoecology (SBEE).
