« Back to Events
Date: 
10 October, 2018 - 11 October, 2018
Location: 
Brussels, Belgium

AQUACROSS seeks to advance the application of ecosystem-based management for aquatic ecosystems in an effort to support the timely achievement of the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy and other international conservation targets. In this regard, AQUACROSS has developed an assessment framework, which considers the full array of interactions, including human activities, within aquatic ecosystems, and tested it in 8 case studies across Europe.

The conference will bring together scientific experts, policy makers, and members of the business community to discuss cross-cutting topics related to the protection of aquatic ecosystems and opportunities for ecosystem-based management. Participants will have the opportunity to interact and discuss the added value of integrative policy and assessment frameworks for the protection of aquatic biodiversity with lessons learned from case studies, other research projects and ongoing policy initiatives.
