The future of Arctic biodiversity assessments: exploring new ways to shorten the time between information and action

Date/time: December 4, 15:00-16:30

Room: San Siro 3

Session organizer: Mike Gill, Canadian High Arctic Research Station

This session would explore how new, innovative approaches to delivering relevant biodiversity information, models and scenarios can be used to shorten the time between information collection and public and policy response. Reflecting upon the Arctic Biodiversity Assessment process, and hearing examples from others outside of the Arctic who are developing new platforms and tools for deriving useful information on biodiversity change to inform more rapid, adaptive and effective conservation, this session would addresses all Congress themes as it would explore new ways to support scenario planning, modelling and ongoing, rapid assessments which are central to addressing these themes.

Session theme: Mainstreaming biodiversity: linking Arctic ecosystems to society
