Next Conference: Track 3b
Please look for more information on the track at the 2019 Nanjing Conference coming soon
Messina, Italy, 2018
Our two tracks 3A and 3B addressed the SDGs “Life on land” and “Life under water”. The presentations covered a diverse set of topics and case studies that, in essence, examined the question whether it is possible to have development of human communities without compromising existing biodiversity. We also acknowledged the great benefits high biodiversity can provide humanity and whether it is possible to restore deleteriously altered ecosystems to enhance biodiversity.
Below a few key results of the 3b Life below Water track at the Bogotá Conference (2017) are displayed. A wide variety of interesting talks led to the following general conclusions;
• Ecosystem services (ESS) are a bridge concept linking natural, social and cultural sciences with decision makers from different walks of life.
