Climate is changing. Shouldn’t nature conservation adapt and rise to the challenge? This webinar series on climate change adaptation and protected area management will help protected area managers answer this question.
In this webinar…
The goal of this first session is to help participants to objectively frame the challenge that climate change adaptation represents for protected area managers.
The webinar will start with an overview of how climate change adaptation is embedded in Europe’s protected areas today. Then, by using the knowledge gained about the evolution of glaciers in the Alps, participants will learn more on what climate change actually means, concretely. To finish, the learnings from migratory birds conservation should help us better understand the challenge that climate change represents for nature conservation professionals.
Program and speakers:
- Nature conservation in a changing climate: setting the scene by Olivier de Sadeleer, EUROPARC Federation (EU)
- Climate change from the perspective of a glaciologist by Jean-Baptiste Bosson, Asters, Conservatoire d’Espaces Naturels Haute-Savoie (FR)
- Migratory birds conservation in a changing climate by Olly Watts, RSPB (UK)
Note that the webinar will offer an opportunity for everyone to interact with the speakers.
In Europe, Réserves Naturelles de France, EUROPARC and eight partners have joined forces under a LIFE Climate Action project to turn the climate change adaptation challenge into an opportunity to innovate for nature conservation. NaturAdapt aims to initiate a transition towards adaptive management of protected areas while laying the foundation for a dynamic collective learning process.
