Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

Basic Information

Network BiodivScen
Aim of the joint call Belmont Forum and BiodivERsA are pleased to announce the 2017-2018 international call for research proposals on “Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services”. The Call will address the two following major (non-exclusive) priorities: - Development and application of scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services across spatial scales of relevance to multiple types of decisions - Consideration of multiple dimensions of biodiversity and ecosystem services in biodiversity scenarios. The call aims at supporting proposals that explicitly address a scenario dimension, taking into account the following definition of scenarios: “Scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services are the outputs of the combination of scenarios of indirect drivers and direct drivers — such as land use change, invasive alien species, over exploitation, climate change or pollution — and models of impacts of these drivers on biodiversity and ecosystem services.”
