Workshop: Grassland Ecosystem Mongolia

BCGC held a Workshop at the Grassland Ecosystem Research Base of IOZ, CAS, 29–30th June 2013, Xilinhot, Inner Mongolia, China with 23 attendees from 6 countries.

In 2008, in order to study Biological Consequences of Global Change, IOZ of CAS set up a grassland ecosystem research base in Xilingol, Inner Mongolia. The major scientific research involves climate change and human activities. By using artificial precipitation, cattle grazing, the research has a focus on population and community dynamics. The aim of the research is provide theory foundation for ecological management in grasslands by solving controversial scientific questions: fluctuation of rodents populations, special mating system, community succession in plants and soil animals.

During the workshop, the attendees exchanged ideas and had a hand-on experience with on-site information.

Mainstreaming Biodiversity: Contributions from Science to Policy

(f.l.t.r.): L.S. Shashidhara (IUBS), Hiroyuki Takeda (IUBS), Erie Tamale (CBD Secretariat), Anne-Hélène Prieur-Richard (Future Earth), Paola Mosig Reidl (CONABIO), Rodolfo Dirzo (IAI), and Lily Rodriguez (IUBS)

The side event entitled “Mainstreaming biodiversity for well-being: Contributions from Science” was organized at the conference of the parties COP13, the highest governing body of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Moderated by Lily Rodriguez (IUBS) the participants discussed a declaration on behalf of more than 300 scientists, practitioners and policymakers. The report summarizes why safeguarding  biodiversity  is  essential  to  improve  our  ability  to  adapt  to abrupt  changes  such  as  extreme  climate  events  or  sudden  financial  market  crashes  and  to transform the deep roots of unsustainable practices and inequity. It was intended to share knowledge, approaches and solutions, among scientists, policy–makers, and the civil society for mainstreaming biodiversity especially focusing on agriculture, fisheries, forestry and tourism. The 3rd Science for Biodiversity Forum was held in Cancun, Mexico, on 1st and 2nd December 2016.

3rd Science Forum for Biodiversity (2016)

IUBS is one of the eight organizing organisations of the Science Forum, which is entitled "Mainstreaming biodiversity for well-being: Contributions from Science" and will take place 1st and 2nd December 2016.

The forum aimes to be a meeting place to share knowledge, approaches and solutions, among scientists, policy – makers, and the civil society for mainstreaming biodiversity especially focusing on agriculture, fisheries, forestry and tourism.

Objectives

  • To discuss and share biodiversity mainstreaming challenges and solutions, with a focus on agriculture, fisheries, forests, and tourism, based on current scientific findings, approaches and the experiences of stakeholders, including COP 13 delegates.
  • To open the dialogue to enhance the technical and scientific cooperation for the replication of best practices and capacity-building on mainstreaming.
  • To provide an open space for debate on science and research among scientists and policy – makers, and alerting scientists on how to communicate to policy-makers and the civil society and scientists to policy and society needs.
