On 14 November 2016, the UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) will host the event “Ecosystem Scenarios and Models from Local to National Scales: Contributions to IPBES Regional and Global Assessments”. The event aims to provide updates on scientific efforts and practices to expand ecosystem scenarios and models from local to national scales, and discuss how to connect and upscale various local and national scenario-building efforts to regional and global scenarios. It will also provide information on the new UNU-IAS project Predicting and Assessing Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services in Japan (PANCES), touching on collaboration with the assessment process of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
Speakers will include Eduardo S. Brondizio (Indiana University Bloomington), Salvatore Arico (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and Simon Ferrier (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia).
