The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems will participate in the 29th International Congress of Conservation Biology (ICCB), with one short course, a discussion group and presentations in two symposiums!
The International Congress of Conservation Biology (ICCB) is a global forum for addressing conservation challenges and for presenting new research in conservation science and practice. It gathers researches, students, environmental educators, and other conservation parties in order to exchange ideas and talk about the existing connection between: the biodiversity conservation and sciences such as genetics, ecology, biogeography, anthropology, history, psychology, and economy, among others.
The 29th International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB 2019) will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 21-25 July 2019. On this edition, the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Thematic Group will participate with one short course that will take place prior to the congress, a discussion group and several presentations in two main symposia. With this events the RLE thematic group will provided new perspectives on geospatial data implementation and applications of ecosystems indicators and indices to support global biodiversity conservation.
Through the discussion group the RLE team will share progress and receive feedback on a to-be-public database that compiles ecosystem risk assessments worldwide. The aim of this event is to ensure that needs of future end-users of the database are adequately met by the time is released officially.
The one-day short course on The Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) aims to bring together professionals from different sectors, researchers and students interested in better understanding the RLE protocol and the requirements to carry out ecosystem risk assessments. The session will be informative and highly interactive, with theoretical presentations interspersed with debates led by experienced facilitators.
The ICCB 2019 general program has been published, and you can find further details about the presentations, course and discussion group, as well as the topics to be addressed.
