RECONCILE — Biodiversity Conservation, Global Change and Uncertainties: Reconciling Biodiversity Persistence and Human Development upon Dynamic Environments
Biodiversity conservation is a crisis discipline: it urges to find measures to reverse the effects of intense threats acting over biodiversity; it conflicts with dominant and competing socioeconomic activities; and it typically runs under tight budgets. Additionally, ecological and socioeconomic environments are tailored by dynamic processes turning analysis and decisions on conservation actions very complex.
Where, when and how to efficiently prioritize conservation actions to abate Climate Change impacts on species distributions? RECONCILE aims at addressing major and actual conservation problems with the ultimate goal of ensuring long-term persistence of species by reconciling conservation and socioeconomy.
