Contribution of Long-term Social-Ecological Research (LTSER) programs in mountains to global policy agendas and UN conventions
The objective of this workshop is to review how mountain LTSER data and information have so far been supporting global policy agendas and United Nations conventions pertaining to mountain ecosystems and how existing as well as newly-collected data could be used in the future.
Wednesday 2 October 2019 - 8h45 to Friday 4 October 2019 - 16h00 - Champex-Lac - Jardin Flore-Alpe, Route de l'Adray 27
The objective of this workshop is to deliver a synthetic overview of how mountain LTSER currently support global policy agendas and UN conventions and how their contribution could be improved and strengthened in the future. Specific questions are:
- what knowledge, data, and information needs do policy agendas and UN conventions have?
- what needs are currently addressed with existing mountain LTSER data?
- are LTSER programs in mountains sufficiently multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary to relate processes spanning across multiple spheres (atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, socioeconomic sphere) and to ultimately inform policy agendas?
- how could the LTSER and policy communities benefit more or better from each other?
