BfN Schriften 672 - Riverine and Coastal Wetlands for Biodiversity and Climate – Linking Science, Policy and Practice. A Compilation of Abstracts for the 5th European Conference 26-28 September 2023 in Bonn, Germany
Riverine and coastal wetlands have been chosen as a focal topic of the 5th conference in this series, due to their high importance for biodiversity conservation as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation. The conference will bring together scientists, policy makers and practitioners to discuss how to jointly advance the conservation and restoration of these vital ecosystems in Europe. Participants will exchange knowledge and experience on how to boost resilience of wetland biodiversity in the face of climate change, how to maximize their climate services and further co-benefits, how to scale up wetland restoration in practice and how to move forward in European wetland policy and governance.
This publication serves as a practical guidance document for the BioClim-Wetlands Conference, compiling detailed information on all sessions, speakers and poster presentations.
The BioClim-Wetlands Conference is held in Bonn on 26th-28th September 2023. It is hosted by BfN and the ENCA network, in close cooperation with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) / German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) and adelphi. The conference contributes to the implementation of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
In May 2023, an additional background document was published as a more technical knowledge base for the BioClim-Wetlands Conference, presenting key findings of a preparatory European expert workshop implemented in November 2022.
