ReNature is attending the third ESP Conference on Ecosystem Services Science, Policy and Practice
From 7 to 10 June 2021, ReNature is going to participate in the third Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) Conference, which will take the form of a hybrid event and will tackle the issue of ecosystem services science, policy and practice in the face of Global Changes.
In the light of the emerging Global Changes, such as Climate Change which has unfolded over the course of the last decade and is drastically affecting ecosystems, human societies and causing biodiversity loss, the conference is going to focus on discussing the appropriate use of the ecosystems services concept and the shift of societies and governance systems towards sustainable pathways.
Throughout the conference, ReNature will be represented by the project members Davide Longato (University of Trento, Italy), Prof. Davide Geneletti (University of Trento, Italy), Dr. Marcus Collier (Trinity College, Dublin), Dr. Lynn Dicks (University of Cambridge, England), Dr. Miriam Grace (University of Cambridge, England) and the project coordinator Dr. Mario Balzan (MCAST, Malta).
ReNature’s team will be active through five of the event’s sessions, where the topics of Mapping and assessing ecosystem services to prioritise nature-based solutions in a high-density urban area; Spatial opportunities and policy instruments for planning Nature-based Solutions in urban areas: a case study in Valletta, Malta; Mapping and assessing ecosystem services to plan and assess water management actions at different scales in Malta; ReNaturing cities through evidence-based implementation of nature-based solutions and Challenges, and Opportunities for the implementation of MAES outcomes in environmental and planning policies in a small island state will be showcased.
