Chief Scientist Dr. Healy Hamilton presented at the Esri Science Symposium, sharing stories from around the globe on why biodiversity is important and how spatial tools, including those developed by NatureServe, are essential for conservation.
This conference is a must-attend for biodiversity & conservation scientists and other professionals who strive to ensure our shared lands and waters are thriving now and in the future. Learn more about the new developments in our efforts to make it possible—and easy—for people to use accurate, current scientific information as the basis for conservation decisions and actions.
EcoHealth Alliance y NatureServe, en colaboración con la Red de Observaciones de Biodiversidad de las Américas (Américas-BON), GEO BON, y la Comisión de Gestión de Ecosistemas de IUCN, y el Equipo de Trabajo de Salud Humana y Manejo Ecosistémico, se complacen en anunciar una edición especial del Pulso del Planeta.
Achieving information integration in any field of science requires understanding the flow of data between production and use, and then engineering one or more solutions from the principles of information computer science and the available technologies. It also entails social engineering to ensure acceptance and sustain implementation.
With biodiversity loss accelerating, we must find ways to better mainstream biodiversity into development decisions and conservation actions. Underpinning this is the need to produce relevant and trustworthy information on biodiversity status and trends and the mechanisms driving these trends.
Biodiversity and ecosystems provide a wide range of contributions to health and well-being; however, these benefits are not routinely considered in health and development decision-making processes. Encouragingly, there are ample opportunities for collaboration between conservation and health communities to tackle shared drivers of biodiversity loss, ecosystem degradation, and ill health.
The presentation will highlight the challenges and opportunities for enhancing the effectiveness of biodiversity mainstreaming and safeguarding through improved collection, sharing, and analysis of biodiversity information.
