Nature Based Solutions: Opportunities in a time of biodiversity crisis and climate emergency

Date: 
Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - 09:30
Location: 
Online

Last year, Ireland and CIEEM declared a climate emergency and biodiversity crisis with Northern Ireland doing in early 2020. These declarations recognised that both crises are inextricably linked and cannot be addressed in isolation. It is vital, as never before, that the work of CIEEM, its members and our professions continue to be at the forefront of targeted action. We believe that Nature-based solutions (NbS) must play a key role and we are happy to announce this as the theme of the Irish Conference 2021.

Despite Europe’s commitment in the legislative and organization effort to improve rivers and to reduce the negative human influences affecting them, European rivers still suffer pollution and damages. The status of rivers and waters within Europe has been well documented by the European Environmental Agency in the report. European waters: Assessment of status and pressures 2018. A key finding of the report is that only around 40 % of surface waters (rivers, lakes and transitional and coastal waters) are in good ecological status or potential, and only 38 % are in good chemical status.

SEFS12 will run as a Virtual Conference in July 2021 due to the uncertainty relating to COVID19 and the likely continuation of health risks and travel restrictions as well as restrictions relating to indoor gatherings. We deeply regret that we won’t be able to welcome you in person to Dublin as originally planned.  There is no doubt that SEFS12 will be a different experience but with the platforms available and creative programme design and promotion, we plan to ‘re-imagine’ SEFS12 and deliver an exciting, welcoming and interactive conference.
