BC3 Article: Identification of conservation and restoration priority areas in the Danube River based on the multi-functionality of river-floodplain systems

Large river-floodplain systems are hotspots of biodiversity and ecosystem services but are also used for multiple human activities, making them one of the most threatened ecosystems worldwide. There is wide evidence that reconnecting river channels with their floodplains is an effective measure to increase their multi-functionality, i.e., ecological integrity, habitats for multiple species and the multiple functions and services of river-floodplain systems, although, the selection of promising sites for restoration projects can be a demanding task.

BC3 Article: Cost-effective restoration and conservation planning in Green and Blue Infrastructure designs. A case study on the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean: Andalusia (Spain) – Morocco

Green and Blue Infrastructure (GBI) is a network designed and planned to deliver a wide range of ecosystem services and to protect biodiversity. Existing GBI designs lacked a systematic method to allocate restoration zones. This study proposes a novel approach for systematically selecting cost-effective areas for restoration on the basis of biodiversity, ecosystem services, and ecosystem condition to give an optimal spatial design of GBI.

BC3 Article: Participatory coastal management through elicitation of ecosystem service preferences and modelling driven by “coastal squeeze”

The Baixo Vouga Lagunar (BVL) is part of Ria de Aveiro coastal lagoon in Portugal, which is classified as a Special Protection Area under the European Habitats and Birds Directives. This part of the system, corresponding to the confluence of the Vouga River with the lagoon, is very important culturally and socioeconomically for the local communities, taking place several human activities, especially agriculture.

Nota de Prensa: Arranca el estudio internacional del IPBES sobre los valores de la naturaleza para el bienestar humano

Unai Pascual, investigador Ikerbasque de BC3 es el copresidente de este grupo que opera bajo los auspicios del IPBES, el organismo intergubernamental de Naciones Unidas compuesto por 130 gobiernos estatales que, desde su creación en 2012, proporciona a los responsables de diseñar políticas públicas la evidencia científica para mejorar el estado de la naturaleza.

Seminars

Seminars

The aim of this programme jointly promoted by University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and BC3, is to contribute to climate change knowledge through a series of lecturesled by recognized academicians in the field.

Summer School

Summer School

The objective of the summer school is to offer an updated and recent view of the ongoing
trends in climate change research in an annual basis. The school is designed to approach
the main scientific topics with a multidisciplinary approach, depending on the main trends on climate change issues and allowing for an integrated view and understanding of the problem. As years go by, the school might evolve its different approaches when teaching about climate change

Spring University

Spring University

This training program is an annual 2-week intensive advanced course that enables simple use of complex models through artificial intelligence. The course is meant to build a new generation of scientists and policy analysts, capable of using coupled human-environmental models in research, and policy, to address and solve complex sustainability problems.

Workshops

Workshops

Klimagune

Klimagune

The Klimagune Workshop is a forum for informal discussion on climate change that is open
to all the agents in the Basque Science and Technology Network. The aim of this initiative is to share knowledge, projects and developments in terms of scientific advancements, focusing on the creation of synergies and possible frameworks for cooperation between the various research groups, organisations and institutions that address this matter.

Training Caravan

Training Caravan

The Education Department of the Basque Government and BC3 have gathered to carry
out the Training Caravan initiative, which has as main aim to raise research vocation
among the students of the Basque Country and inform about climate change research.

Through info.bc3research.org blog, you will have access and the opportunity to share in social media, all the BC3 related news and events. This blog will be the platform to disseminate the information about BC3 research (scientific publications with edits of authors, research projects in which BC3 is involved and its impact (activities organized within the scientific research process, the ongoing scientific findings and outputs, “capacity building” activities organized and focused on the decision-making processes (Policy), scientific networks creation and any other science dissemination initiative). Knowledge transfer related news and initiatives will have their own space in this blog , where the activities and events that BC3 organizes to bridge science with policy-making, enterprises and society as a whole will be gathered. Aligned with BC3´s Strategic Goal, promoting the transition towards Trans-disciplinary Science is the final objective. Science with and for society. All the produced news related to the research institution and to Climate Change, organized events by BC3, as well as the activities in which the Knowledge Body of BC3 participate, will be shared in this blog. You have the opportunity to subscribe to our RSS and register to our distribution list.
