Dear Colleagues, It is a pleasure to announce the Bioecosys final Conference to be held on 6 December 2021 at ISA in Lisbon (Portugal). In order to address the COVID-19 pandemic situation, we will hold the conference in a hybrid format (in loco and live streaming).
Shedding light on local conditions in the Portuguese Case Study Area “Vale do Sousa” (ZIF entre Douro e Sousa e ZIF Paiva) and exploring the needs for developing a) landscape-level collaborative approaches to provide forest ecosystem services and address wildfire risk and b) mechanisms to attract payments for these services
In the first session, international keynote speakers will provide a global perspective on advanced forest ecosystem management DSS and multiple criteria methods as well as approaches to attract payments for ecosystem services.
The second session will include presentations of recent research targeting the application of forest ecosystem management planning methods as well as of business models to get payments for ecosystem services. It will encompass demonstrations of a Pareto frontier computational platform results to select baskets of ecosystem services and of a web-based platform to support the auction of ecosystem services
Finally, the conference will encompass a WORLDWIDE CAFÉ for networking and Closing Session at Salão Nobre [Main Building]. You are cordially invited to join us.
Bioecosys brings together expertise and experience in forest ecosystem management and economics to communicate recent findings and to accelerate the transfer of knowledge and best practices to stakeholders and forest actors. The main focus of the conference is on a) the communication of innovations in forest ecosystem management and decision support tools as well as in mechanisms to attract payments for ecosystem services and b) the demonstration of its application to bridge the gap between science and practice.
