The EU Water Framework Directive aims to ensure restoration of Europe’s water bodies to “good ecological status” by 2027. Many Member States will struggle to meet this target, with around half of EU river catchments currently reporting below standard water quality. Diffuse pollution from agriculture represents a major pressure, affecting over 90% of river basins.
All silvicultural practices produce effects on wood properties and thereafter on market value. For instance practices such as initial planting, growing space, thinning and/ or timing and intensity of pruning may have a great influence on the extent of branching and therefore on the final product.
Wetlands are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world due to their delivery of ecosystem services (ES), but they are particularly vulnerable to drivers of land-use change. However, little is known about how different wetlands respond to drivers of land-use change and how that impacts their delivery of ES.
"KLIMAGUNE 2017 - CLIMATE CHANGE AND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT"
The challenge of Klimagune 2017 – the two-yearly gathering on climate change– is to join forces in generating new transdisciplinary knowledge of climate change and transmitting it to numerous audiences by means of innovative dynamics of engagement.
Its goal is to activate a framework of collaboration intended to remain permanently in place for all agents obliged to engage in action against climate change: from academia and the institutions to all citizens.
Organised by BC3 (Basque Centre for Climate Change) and the University of the Basque Country, the 7th edition of this workshop will analyse forms and degrees of social engagement in regard to climate change, with contributions by some of the most respected thinkers and leaders in the field.
With this call to generate networks of action in which all agents take an active part, Klimagune 2017 takes up the spirit of action following the Paris Agreements.
