BECC annual meeting 2022 -The dual crises of biodiversity and climate change
The IPCC and IPBES have both highlighted that climate change and biodiversity loss are interconnected through mechanistic dependencies as well as shared drivers, potentially giving rise to synergies and trade-offs. As a result, biodiversity loss and climate change need to be understood as a dual crisis and managed together rather than in silos. However, the potential for policy to identify synergistic solutions while avoiding trade-offs depends on the nature of the links between the two problems. Thus, it becomes essential to better understand these interlinkages as well as how society could deal with the dual problems.
The annual meeting will provide a forum for discussing questions like: What are the benefits and challenges of working on the interconnectedness of climate change and biodiversity loss? How could BECC as a community study (and engage with) the dual challenge in the future? Does it make sense to view the dual problem as a nexus?
The program is centered around interactive sessions giving participants the opportunity to discuss and reflect on issues related to the theme and/or your research. In particular:
We invite you to reflect on the dual crisis in the form of a 5-minute “speedtalk”. The aim of these presentations is to serve as a basis for discussion, as well as being a great opportunity to get feedback and input from the BECC community. Therefore, all thoughts and ideas are most welcome: presentations of research, reflections on future directions for research and outreach, and other reflections related to the theme.
Ph.D. students and early-career researchers active within BECC are also invited to share their research in poster presentations.
Please register to the BECC Annual meeting before Nov 22nd.
