CONFERENCE: Instruments for climate action on natural heritage
In person: Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones Europa
The tools presented at this conference seek to facilitate the process of diagnosing the effects of climate change on the natural heritage of the Basque Country by presenting results on the climate risk of terrestrial habitats and the bioclimatic analysis. The methodologies developed to carry out this diagnosis, which could be transferred to other Autonomous Communities or regions, will also be presented. On the other hand, tools that can facilitate the integration of the climate perspective into the Natura 2000 Network’s management documents will be presented, along with specific examples of how to incorporate adaptation into the management of groups of species, such as amphibians or pollinators.
Attendance at the event can be in person or via ZOOM. Please tick your preference on registering.
