The key goal of the workshop is to introduce knowledge, concepts, tools, and applications for the management and conservation of aquatic ecosystems, especially as relates to building ecosystem resilience and adapting to climate change.
 

Europe’s aquatic resources are increasingly affected by stressors that interact to affect both humans and aquatic ecosystems in complex ways. These stressors include energy development, dams and other barriers to fish migration; water removal for domestic, industrial, and agricultural use; invasive species and disease; pollution; land management activities, such as timber harvest, grazing, and development; and climate induced rising water temperatures and decreasing flows, drought, and flooding.

 

Objective: Provide essential knowledge and understanding of freshwater conservation, taking into consideration European aquatic ecosystem challenges and opportunities for inland capture and sport fisheries, biodiversity, and aquatic ecosystem conservation. Participants will be introduced to knowledge, concepts, tools, and applications for the management and conservation of aquatic ecosystems, especially as relates to building ecosystem resilience and adapting to climate change.


The webinar targets policymakers, researchers and resource managers and government officials from beneficiary countries in Eastern / Central Europe and the Balkans, who are interested in cutting-edge ecosystem science for the improvement of understanding of how human and natural stressors affect aquatic ecosystems and how to address these challenges through coordinated and multidisciplinary data collection, synthesis and analysis, predictions and decision-support tools generated from multi-agency and international partnerships for shared inland waterbodies. inland waterbodies.
