Adapting Conservation to a Changing Climate – Conference, January 2011

Natural England and the British Ecological Society are working together to organise a conference early next year, exploring conservation in the context of a changing climate. This event will take place over two days, 11 – 12 January, at Charles Darwin House, London; the headquarters of the BES.

Effective adaptation research requires a strong partnership between researchers, practitioners and policy makers. It is essential that adaptation measures are developed on the basis of sound science, combined with a rigorous assessment of their feasibility and acceptability to society. This conference will therefore bring scientists together with policy makers and those who are actually implementing adaptation measures.

More information will be available shortly on the Public Policy section of the BES website, under ‘Forthcoming Meetings’.
