Second CEE conference takes place in April: Programme available now!

NEWS | 2018-03-07

The second conference of the Collaboration for Environmental Evidence (CEE) will take place in Paris, France, between 16-20 April 2018. Mistra EviEM will be there!

The conference aims to promote and support evidence-based approaches to environmental management and high quality syntheses of evidence.

Syntheses like these can help decision-makers to better conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services. The conference will cover science, policy, and practice from local to global scales.

This 2018 conference will be arranged by the French CEE centre, the Foundation for Research on Biodiversity (FRB). FRB is hoping that, by hosting the next conference in Paris, it will encourage non-English countries to participate and adopt evidence-synthesis approaches, and inspire the creation of national and European review teams and possibly new Centres.

 Parts of the EviEM Secretariat will be participating in the conference and presenting on topics such as stakeholder engagement, capacity building for low- and middle income countries, reporting standards and rapid mapping.

See below a list of EviEMs presentations.
