IMPACT - International conference on managing protected areas under climate change

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 24 - 26 Sep 2012 Location: Germany (Dresden) Venue: Dormero Hotel Königshof

Climate Change and anthropogenic activities are challenging European habitats and their management. Especially protected areas are confronted with the pressing need to monitor changes, adapt management strategies and consider flexible responses to future developments.

IMPACT sets out to meet the growing need for sharing knowledge and experiences in the field of biodiversity conservation and climate change. Taking a transdisciplinary perspective, the aim of the conference is to bring together researchers, conservation managers and decision-makers in the field of nature conservation. It provides a platform for dialogue to develop a better understanding of the complex impacts of climate change on biodiversity on local level and the means to adapt management in protected areas accordingly. We anticipate 150 international participants to enjoy two days of technical sessions, workshops, poster exhibits and social activities, and one day of excursions.
