Joint BES IUCN Symposium 2012:
Investing in Peatlands – Demonstrating Success Bangor University, UK
26 - 28 June 2012 (link)
This symposium will bring together experts from science, policy and practice from a wide range of backgrounds to highlight and debate the importance of peatlands from an ecological, social and economic perspective. Our current state of knowledge of peatlands and their ecosystem services will be reviewed and important knowledge gaps will be addressed in order to provide recommendations on how these can be filled. The symposium will assess socio-economic tools to embed peatland conservation in practice and policy, e.g. through payment for ecosystem services as well as novel partnership approaches between conservation, business and policy.
The symposium will be interdisciplinary with a strong focus on interaction of ecology and conservation science with socio-economics and policy. This will be reflected in the selection of keynote speakers and themes for the breakout sessions.
