Adapting conservation to a changing climate
A joint British Ecological Society and Natural England conference
(577 KB pdf)
We organised a two-day conference with Natural England in January 2011, exploring how practical conservation measures could facilitate adaptation to climate change.
There is much interest in approaches allowing conservation and climate change adaptation objectives to be met simultaneously, using what is sometimes called ecosystem-based adaptation, for example, identifying where creating wetlands can provide flood defence. This conference aimed to provide a timely review and synthesis of this area of research.
