Nature-based Solutions to Climate Change in Urban Areas Conference

Climate change has significant impact on society and biodiversity in Europe. Urban inhabitants are most likely to experience climate change effects directly because currently 75 per cent of Europeans live in urban areas. Here, management of urban ecosystems offer sustainable and cost-effective solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation while contributing to human well-being.

This joint European conference in Bonn will bring together experts from science, policy and practice to highlight and discuss the importance of nature-based solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation in urban areas and their rural surroundings. The aim of the conference is to increase knowledge and to foster linkages between science, policy and practice regarding nature-based solutions to meet the challenge of climate change in urban areas. In addition, emphasize is given to the potential of nature-based approaches to create co-benefits.

The conference will be opened by Prof. Jessel (BfN President) followed by keynotes by Dr. Bruynickx (EEA Executive Director) and Dr. Krull (chair of the H2020 expert group on nature-based solutions and re-naturing cities). Latest scientific findings on the impacts of climate change on European urban ecosystems will be discussed. Furthermore, the implementation of conservation measures and nature-based solutions within cities will be outlined. Interactive sessions will focus on case studies of successful nature-based projects and lessons learned. Resulting discussions of policy issues in climate change and nature conservation in European urban areas will lead to recommendations for creating synergies between ongoing policy processes, scientific programes and practical implementation.

8th ESP World Conference

The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) is a worldwide network, founded in 2008, to enhance the science and practical application of ecosystem services. To facilitate the needed dialogue between scientists, policy makers and practitioners ESP organises an annual international conference in different parts of the world.

The 8th World ESP conference will be held in South Africa from 9-13 November 2015.

The central theme is ‘Ecosystem Services for Nature, People and Prosperity’. The conference will pay special attention to the public and private sector dialogue on how the ecosystem services concept can be used to support conservation, improve livelihoods and engage the business community.

We especially encourage delegates from businesses to attend the ESP conference in order to discuss challenges and opportunities in using the concept of ecosystem services to achieve conservation and sustainable use of our ‘natural capital’ within a market-context. The conference will provide an excellent platform to engage with experts who can generate solutions to these challenges and start making a difference in practice.

Coastal Carbon Economics Webinar with MESP and CSF

The Conservation Strategy Fund and Duke University have launched a collaborative partnership to create a Conservation Economics Initiative. The Initiative will make economics training more readily available to conservation professionals around the world starting with its first MESP sponsored webinar on February 10th.

Terrestrial ecosystems such as forests and coastal and marine ecosystems (MCEs) such as mangroves, salt marshes and sea grasses are a treasure trove, providing a range of ecosystem services that are economically and socially valuable to populations far and wide. Unfortunately many of these ecosystem services are unpriced and therefore underprovided when competing with onsite goods and services that do receive compensation such as agriculture, aquaculture and other developed uses. One ecosystem service provided by these systems is biological carbon sequestration, the process of capturing and retaining carbon in soils and vegetation, which helps mitigate the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere that lead to climate risk. MCEs are an incredibly rich pool of carbon, storing as much as three times per hectare more than forest ecosystems, which themselves are quite carbon rich. Global efforts to fight climate change have created financial mechanisms to reward parties for sequestering carbon.

This webinar will discuss how these payment programs might apply to forests and MCEs, what kind of economic value this might add to keeping these systems intact and whether this may be sufficient to forestall their loss.

World Forum on Natural Capital

A revolution is taking place in how businesses and governments account for natural capital.

The inaugural World Forum on Natural Capital will be the first major global conference devoted exclusively to turning the debate on natural capital accounting into action. It will build on the enormous private sector interest shown at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio in June 2012 and the many developments that have taken place since.

Against a backdrop of growing global awareness that our ecosystems and biodiversity underpin both wealth creation and human security, the Rio Earth Summit saw the launch of the Natural Capital Declaration, a global finance-led initiative convened by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative and the Global Canopy Programme.

By signing the Declaration, CEOs at the helm of 39 banks, investment funds and insurance companies announced their commitment to understanding their impacts and dependencies on natural capital, and to incorporating natural capital considerations into their products and accounting. The United Nations Environment Programme is one of the key partners in the World Forum on Natural Capital, which will mark an important step in moving the debate further towards action.

Payments for Environmental Services: a Way Forward for Mediterranean Forests

Mediterranean forests and woodlands, which cover 73M ha, are the main ecological infrastructure in the region. They provide valuable ecosystem services, relevant for the most strategic resources of the region to sustain life: water, soil and biodiversity.  
 
However, the sustainable provision of forest goods and services is seriously threatened by drastic and rapid climate and land use changes. The challenge is to find ways to finance adaptive forest management strategies, given the low profitability of traditional forestry. Payments for environmental services (PES) are increasingly acknowledged on the policy arena as an approach to recognize the value of ecosystem services and to generate financing for effective ecosystem management.
 
The ThinkForest forum, facilated by EFI, is organising a seminar called Payments for Environmental Services: a Way Forward for Mediterranean Forests? which will be concentrating on the above-mentioned issues. The seminar will be take place on 27 November 2012 at 16.00-18.30 in the European Parliament, Brussels.
 
The objectives of the event are to:
  • discuss the specific economic nature of Mediterranean forests and their goods and services;
  • present the latest scientific knowledge on payments for environmental services and their practical implementation in the Mediterranean region and
  • discuss the potential of PES to address specific problems of Mediterranean forests (e.g. forest fires, deforestation).
A detailed programme of the event is available at the ThinkForest website. Registration is currently open, and an online registration form is available here. Please register before 19 November!
