Global change adaptation: Impact of governance schemes on biodiversity and landscapes

Publié le jeudi 05 septembre 2013 par Elsa Zotian

Résumé

The aim of this conference is to contribute to the general ideas evolution on governance enabling to adapt to global change through biodiversity and cultural landscapes preservation. Many countries have established various institutions to facilitate their sustainable development, such as expert groups, advisory consultants, assessment procedures, evaluation clauses, incentive and regulation policies. Until very recently, policies aimed at mitigating biodiversity erosion, and maintain landscape quality. But more and more people wonder how to design policies going forward simple conservation logics towards more active policies where biodiversity elements contribute to sustainable development. Policies aiming at progressively developing biodiversity (and not only mitigating its erosion), at integrating landscapes to a global management of local development, do need design patterns that integrate human activities and involve the different actors.

Argument

The Clermont-Ferrand federation for environment invites proposals for papers for the 2012 conference that focuses on governance schemes impact on biodiversity, to adapt to global change. Biodiversity is recognized worldly for its key role on sustainable development, because of the various services it offers to human societies, ecosystem maintenance, primary resources (food, raw materials, energy) supply, regulation (climate, biochemical cycles), cultural services (cultural landscapes especially). Global change (climate change and any changes with global consequences like changes in land use, habitat destruction, pollution, global economic trends affecting markets) is likely to alter significantly the dynamics of biodiversity and ecosystems functioning.

The aim of this conference is to contribute to the general ideas evolution on governance enabling to adapt to global change through biodiversity and cultural landscapes preservation. Many countries have established various institutions to facilitate their sustainable development, such as expert groups, advisory consultants, assessment procedures, evaluation clauses, incentive and regulation policies. Until very recently, policies aimed at mitigating biodiversity erosion, and maintain landscape quality. But more and more people wonder how to design policies going forward simple conservation logics towards more active policies where biodiversity elements contribute to sustainable development. Policies aiming at progressively developing biodiversity (and not only mitigating its erosion), at integrating landscapes to a global management of local development, do need design patterns that integrate human activities and involve the different actors.

The conference will focus on governance patterns fostering a better adaptation to climate change on the following questions:

  • Mitigation of invasive species, prevention of equilibriums changes and non-point source pollution issues;
  • Resilience: how to mobilize the resilience of living systems to mitigate the consequences of global change, joint effects between production and ecosystems services;
  • Remediation: bio-engineering, innovative technologies, eco-innovation.

Themes of the conference:

  • International tools to cope with climate change and its consequences on biodiversity: economic instruments, voluntary agreements, norms, relationships with international trade agreements, transboundary issues ;
  • Methodological challenges and issues regarding invasive species, scale issues, bio-remediation: political ecology, resilience approaches, integrated assessment, multiple method approaches, life-cycle analysis
  • Governance, policies and institutions to foster biodiversity conservation/enhancement at local/regional level: multi-level governance, regional and territorial planning, policymix, participatory processes.

Posters

A special attention will be dedicated to posters during the conference with guided tours and the delivery of a “best poster” prize by the scientific committee.
