Ecosystem degradation has reached the far corners of our planet, from the precious rainforests to priceless reefs. The Convention on Biological Diversity declares that one of the main targets of the decade 2020-2030 is to ensure that at least 30% of areas of degraded terrestrial, inland water, and marine and coastal ecosystems are under effective restoration, to enhance biodiversity and ecosystem functions. This is a huge challenge for humanity to recover the ecosystem health and improve economic well-being.
But there is hope. We are seeing widespread discussions on the importance of ecosystem restoration and investment in that. However, the efforts need to be well designed, implemented, and monitored.
In this training, you will learn about what is at stake, gain knowledge and get specific tools for supporting the global effort of restoring the world’s ecosystems. This registration is for the Ecosystem Restoration and Carbon Projects course, which consists of a three-day intense classroom training.
The course covers the comprehensive Preferred by Nature’s Ecosystem Restoration approach and the Ecosystem Services main concepts, as well the key elements of the carbon initiatives assessment based on international case studies from different ecosystems.
The course agenda is to be added. The training will be held on 12-13-14 December 2023 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The sessions start at 09:30 and finish at 18:30.
This course is conducted in English. Please ensure that your language skills allow you to fully engage in presentations, group exercises, discussions, and examinations.
