The main goal of the conference is to promote the conservation and sustainable use of Arctic biodiversity through dialogue among scientists, policy-makers, government officials, industry, civil society and indigenous peoples.

The Arctic Biodiversity Congress is being hosted and arranged by the the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) working group of the Arctic Council in close co-operation with Norway as the host country and its Norwegian Environment Agency (Miljødirektoratet).

The Norwegian Environment Agency is the Norwegian focal point for CAFF (hosting the CAFF national representative) and will be the Norwegian contact point for the Congress.
