Forum on Ecosystem-based Management of Freshwater, Coastal, and Marine Ecosystems: Insights for Innovation from Science, Policy and Business, in the frame of AQUACROSS Project
In the frame of AQUACROSS Project the Forum on Ecosystem-based Management of Freshwater, Coastal, and Marine Ecosystems: Insights for Innovation from Science, Policy and Business, is being held today 27 June and tomorrow 28 June in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid),
This project, coordinated by the Ecologic Institute, the project has the participation of 15 partners, including IMDEA Agua, which organizes this Forum, guided by Gonzalo Delacámara, researcher in Alcala de Henares.
The aim of the Forum is to bring together scientists, policy makers, and members of the business community engaged in innovative solutions to discuss cross-cutting topics related to aquatic eco-systems and opportunities for ecosystem-based management.
It also helds an interactive multi-stakeholder panel discussion with key leaders and experts who will share their views and experiences in assessing, managing, and even using freshwater, coastal, and marine ecosystems.
Finally, the Forum aims to share and review the provisional results of AQUACROSS, in order to bring new knowledge and innovative ideas into project.
AQUACROSS is a Horizon 2020 project which aims to support EU efforts to protect aquatic biodiversity and ensure the provision of aquatic ecosystem services. As such, AQUACROSS seeks to advance knowledge and application of ecosystem-based management (EBM) for aquatic ecosystems to support the timely achievement of the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy targets.
