  • Developing new ALTER-Net initiatives — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    Council already wishes to support is inspired by the successful Back to the Future project which was funded by the International Polar Year see the special issue of Ambio http link springer com journal 13280 40 6 page 1 The project involved scientists who had studied field sites many years ago teaming up with younger scientists to revisit the sites and collect new data take new photographs and compare old and new information to infer about change The teams involved in the Back to the Future BTF project talk about its legacy Furthermore knowledge has been transferred from older researchers who established sites many decades ago to young researchers BTF has built capacity for future research in a rapidly changing environment I feel this is a concept that ALTER Net could build upon The Network Council have ear marked a small budget 14K to help establish a similar kind of initiative which teams up senior and junior researchers However the exact nature of that project has yet to be determined I hope we can spend some time in this side event discussing the idea further There are potential links with LTER Europe and activities such as digitisation of old maps perhaps to quantify past ecosystem services rescuing old datasets and inter generational knowledge exchange can all be considered Again if you have an ideas on this theme please contact Andy Sier by 7 April at the latest Provisional programme This programme is subject to change Times are approximate 14 00 14 20 Andrew Sier Welcome and introduction Presentation of project ideas Back to the future type projects 14 20 14 40 Andrew Sier Introduction to the Back to the future concept 14 40 15 00 Michael Mirtl Examples of the historical ecology approach 15 00 15 20 Weronika Maslanko Changes

  • Target 3 Session — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    resource management is essential The governance systems geared towards management and sustainable production face high expectations to participate in halting biodiversity loss and taking on new conservation measures Turning the ambitious biodiversity conservation goals into practice requires integration of conservation and management as well as engagement of natural resource managing actors The expectation is that applying a mix of policy instruments ranging from regulations and planning to incentives and extension will generate the required changes and eventually have an effect on the status of biodiversity Advancing these policy instruments and attempting to influence sector governance the decision makers needs the state of the art understanding of the theoretical and practical preconditions for the different governance arrangements Our session will provide windows to the pressing question on how biodiversity can be governed in areas managed for natural resource production conclude with a panel discussion or workshop on how the Target 3 can be advanced Please feel welcome to join and contribute 9 00 9 05 Eeva Primmer SYKE Welcome and introduction to the session 9 05 9 25 Claudia Olazabal EU DG Env The rationale actions and goals of Target 3 9 25 9 40 Eeva Primmer SYKE Natural resource governance turning biodiversity conservation policy into practice with an example from forestry 9 40 10 00 Mikael Hildén SYKE Incoherence of natural resource production and conservation policies biomass biodiversity 10 00 10 20 Steven A Wolf Cornell University Putting payment for ecosystem services in perspective Historical context and knowledge claims 10 20 10 50 Henk Westhoek PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency Sustainable intensification exploring necessity and ways forward growing consumption farmland biodiversity 11 00 11 30 Coffee Tea Break 11 30 13 00 Panel discussion or workshop on target implementation recommendations from science to policy In this section Outputs Conferences Nature
