TOPIC: Intro by the coordinator

Intro by the coordinator 2 years 4 months ago #7

Dear colleagues,
Biodiversity research in Europe has come a long way over the past 20 years, keeoping the topic in the public discussions, but also integrating across disciplines and countries, across data sets and knowledge, to name just a few aspects. At the same time, the field of work opens up even more --- links to climate change, land use changes, the topic of ecosystem services, .... to name just a few.

This highlights the needs to further integrate - in science, with other knowledge holders, to inform decision making. This is not an easy task, but yet, it needs to be tackled if we want to come on a sustainable paths balancing the use and the protection of nature.

The white paper presented here in several sections for discussion brings together a lot of these comeplexities into four sections, baed on the work conducted in the KNEU project and beyond:
  • Section 1 (this section) gives a general introduction and should be used for general discussions
  • Section 2 shortly summarizes the background and context for the NoK
  • Section 3 discusses the potential functions for a NoK
  • Section 4 outlines the challenges, lessons learned and added values of a NoK
  • Section 5 derives main options for the design of the NoK and its potential governance structure, rules and procedures for operating it
We will post additional inputs from the White Paper on a regular basis in the sections to make discussions easier and we look forward to your input

Best wishes
Carsten Neßhöver (KNEU project coordinator)

Dear Carsten, Marie, and colleagues,

Thank you for your relevant initiative!

Recently I came across and article, discussing psychological barriers to take action - here in the context of climate change - which recognises that despite so much is known, so little personal corrective action is taken. To my understanding one can easily replace climate change by biodiversity loss and read the article with our eyes:

Looking forward to meeting you in Berlin,
Ole Ostermann, Biodiversity and Ecosystem services coordinator at the JRC
