The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), together with its Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM), are pleased to invite you to a one-day training workshop on The Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) and how to correctly apply this IUCN knowledge product´s categories and criteria. The IUCN RLE, underpinned by strong scientific-foundations, evaluates the change in ecosystem distribution and function using quantitative measures and thresholds thus informing better ecosystem management solutions and helping identify areas that need fast and effective actions.
June 18, 2018, 8 a.m. - June 20, 2018, 5 p.m. at Glen Cove Mansion Hotel & Conference Center
The Forum of Experts in SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting is organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), the World Bank, and the European Union project “Natural Capital Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services”.
June 15, 2018, 7:50 a.m. - June 26, 2018, 6:30 p.m. at Congress Centre Davos
Organized by the WSL-Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF, POLAR 2018 is a joint event from the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR and International Arctic Science Committee IASC. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for those interested to gather information about the latest research from Arctic, Antarctic, and high altitude regions and to meet scientists from all over the world. The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) will be there too with a presentation by Prof. David Keith, "Assessing Risks to Polar Ecosystems: The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Criteria".[Session Block: Geological heritage and geo-conservation in the Polar Regions & Conservation in the Polar Regions: Challenges, Strategies and Collaborations].
May 8, 2018, 9 a.m. - May 9, 2018, 5 p.m. at Shine Dome, Canberra, Australia
The Boden Research Conference "Ecological Surprises and Rapid Collapse of Ecosystems in a Changing World" aim to explore the relationships between stress build-up, critical transitions, tipping points, and collapse, and search for commonalities. Researchers from a range of disciplines including ecology, ecophysiology, population biology, human health, disaster science, physics, mathematics, and economics, as well as environmental managers, are welcome to attend the event and explore this topic. The Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) will be there too with two presentations (Ecosystem collapse: from science to policy - Prof. David Keith, Developing a standardized definition of ecosystem collapse for risk assessment - Dr. Lucie Bland) and a workshop (Dr. Emily Nicholson and Dr. Lucie Bland). Come join us!
