This conference will contribute to this vision by viewing biodiversity through the lens of an Earth system approach; investigate the intertwined impacts of drivers of global environmental change on biodiversity and ecosystems, and highlight the benefits and solutions biodiversity and ecosystems provide to sustainable development.

Informar

The conference objective is to compile and synthesise the scientific evidence related to the current state of integrated forest management approaches. This can be understood as approaches where both policy and forest management provide a multitude of services at the same time, either at the forest stand or at the forest landscape level. The conference brings together academic researchers from different disciplines such as policy analysis, ecology, economics, forest (ecosystem) management and conservation. It also will engage policymakers and practitioners.

WildCRU

Human-wildlife conflict is one of the most pressing threats to biodiversity conservation and achievement of sustainable developWment. These conflicts threaten the healthy co-existence of people and wildlife and undermine conservation efforts. Collaboration across disciplines and sectors is needed in this to address human-wildlife conflicts world-wide. This conference provides a major opportunity to do so. For the first time at this scale, we are bringing together representatives from several major sectors, including governments, NGOs, intergovernmental organisations, academic and business sectors, and indigenous and local communities, to discuss and debate insights and solutions for human-wildlife conflict management.
