World Soil Day
Dec 5 all-day
World Soil Day

Every 5 seconds, the equivalent of one soccer field of soil is eroded. This alarming fact reaffirms the need to raise awareness through World Soil Day of this growing problem, as the Earth’s population continues to expand.

This year, by addressing the increasing challenges of soil management, the FAO campaign “Stop soil erosion, Save our future” aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being. By encouraging people around the world to engage in proactively improving soil health, the campaign also aims to raise the profile of healthy soil. If we do not act soon, erosion will; the fertility of soil will continue to be adversely affected at an alarming rate, threatening global food supplies and food safety.

Encouraging all people to participate, FAO has created a thematic website full of information, initiatives and material to spread the message through different multimedia platforms.

Conference: Forests for Biodiversity & Climate Change @ Charlemagne building, European Commission
Feb 4 – Feb 5 all-day
Conference: Forests for Biodiversity & Climate Change @ Charlemagne building, European Commission

Forests cover approximately 30% of the Earth’s land area, host 80% of its biodiversity; support the livelihoods of around a quarter of the world’s population.

At the EU level, forests cover approximately 42% of the land area. In addition to providing economic and job opportunities to local communities, forests are an irreplaceable biodiversity reservoirs and carbon sinks; they prevent soil erosion; they provide clean water through filtration; they clean the air; they play a central role in risk reduction measures vis-à-vis natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, heatwaves, erosion or landslides; and they support leisure and recreation, essential for human health.

The world’s forests are in serious danger from deforestation and forest degradation, with a forest area of 1.3 million square kilometres lost between 1990 and 2016. Pressures on EU forest ecosystems due to climate change and unsustainable forest management are a reason for concern and are expected to increase in the future, due to increasing demand of timber coming from the bioenergy the bioeconomy sectors, in a context where illegal logging continues to be recorded in a number of Countries. Overall, protecting forests means protecting biodiversity and working for a climate neutral and climate resilient land.

In this context, DG Environment organises an international Conference on Forest for Biodiversity and Climate Change on 4th and 5th February 2020 in Brussels (Charlemagne building, European Commission).

Feb 5 @ 9:00 am – 5:45 pm
Horizon 2050: Towards a greener, smarter world @ ING Marnix, Rue du Trône 1

The incoming European Commission’s policy agenda is arguably its most ambitious to date. During its five year term, the Commission will seek legally binding commitments to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, unlock €1 trillion in green transition financing by 2030, and take a global leadership role in the governance of artificial intelligence, among other headline goals. It will also launch Horizon Europe, its largest ever research and innovation programme, with a clearly defined range of impact targets.

In February, the Science|Business Annual Network Conference will bring together over 300 stakeholders for two main purposes: first, to take stock of latest developments around the key pillars of the new agenda; and second, to explore their implications for the science, technology and innovation communities that will have a critical role to play in driving progress. By extension, it will address the challenge of developing the next generation(s) of researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs who will have a leading role to play in delivering a climate-neutral, sustainable Europe by 2050.

6th International Climate Change Adaptation Conference

6th International Climate Change Adaptation Conference

Adaptation Futures 2020 in India.

The Energy and Resources Institute will co-host the Adaptation Futures 2020 with the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP) in Delhi from April 27-30, 2020. It is the sixth in the Adaptation Futures international conference series on global adaptation and the first to be held in Asia. Adaptation Futures is the flagship event of the World Adaptation Science Program, which is one of the four components of World Climate Programme (WCP) based on the World Meteorological Organisation Congress XVI Resolution 18. As a premier event in the global adaptation spectrum, Adaptation Futures is a unique platform to facilitate dialogues towards action oriented solutions from a diverse range of stakeholders that includes academia, practitioners, scientists and policy makers from across the world.

India due to its high reliance on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, water, and forestry for resources and livelihoods faces an urgent need for adapting to the risks posed by climate change. The country has been making significant efforts over the years to bring adaptation issues to the forefront in the evolving global climate regime. The Government of India has also formulated mechanisms to integrate adaptation action as part of the developmental process under the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change. India along with other developing nations, has been instrumental in putting forth a global goal of adaptation with an aim of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability under the Paris Climate Agreement. While adaptation requires local and national set of actions, there is a need for significant global cooperation in meeting the resource requirements of developing countries. In this context, Adaptation Futures 2020 will be an ideal opportunity to give visibility to the adaptation requirements of developing and generate significant dialogues around actionable solutions.

Degrowth Conference Vienna 2020: Strategies for a Social Ecological Transformation

From May 29th – June 1st 2020, Vienna will host a thematic degrowth conference, focusing on Strategies for Social-Ecological Transformation.

The conference is hosted by the association Degrowth Vienna as well as several university institutes from Vienna. It will take place at the University of Vienna and Semper Depot.

The conference will have a participatory design, including a thorough documentation process to generate tangible outcomes for the degrowth movement and research community. The conference consists of two main parts, firstly understanding past and future transformations and the role of strategies and secondly, strategies in practice.

Scholars, practitioners, activists and artists are warmly invited to send proposals before December 31th, 2019 for one or more of the three different forms of contributions: 1) Submitting to a Standard Session, 2) Faciliating a Workshop Session or 3) Hosting Consecutive Session. Within these forms, different formats are welcome, and participants are encouraged you to develop the format which fits your purpose best. Each session lasts 90 minutes. Keep in mind, this conference has a thematic focus on strategies for degrowth, which requires that only submissions closely related to this theme can be accepted.
