ARSINOE Seminar Series #6 – Exploring the effects of climate change on biodiversity

February 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Biological diversity is vital for the proper functioning of ecosystems, contributing significantly to the delivery of essential services that sustain life on Earth. Life itself relies on access to clean water, pure air, fertile land, a robust ecosystem, and a climate suitable for living. Unfortunately, human activities, such as ecosystem degradation and climate change, are currently causing a decline in biodiversity across the globe, with variations in impact observed in different regions and among various species.

The ongoing rates of species extinction and the subsequent losses in global biodiversity are expected to worsen if current practices persist. Tackling this challenge requires comprehensive measures across all sectors. Notably, the water sector holds a pivotal position in efforts to reverse biodiversity loss, recognizing its crucial role in supporting life on Earth.

In this context, an upcoming seminar organized by ARSINOE and its sister projects, TRANSFORMAR, IMPETUS, and REGILIENCE, aims to unravel the complex effects of climate change on biodiversity. The seminar seeks to explore practical actions that stakeholders in the European water sector can take to effectively address biodiversity loss.

By focusing on critical systems such as biodiversity, and the way this is influenced by flooding, sea-level rise, droughts, water scarcity, heatwaves, and deforestation, ARSINOE aims to showcase a transformative three-tier approach through nine diverse showcases.

The panel of experts, drawn from ARSINOE and its sister projects, will share invaluable insights into their ambitious goals and experiences, offering a panoramic view of the ongoing efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change on biodiversity. The seminar is not just a discussion; it is a collective endeavour to foster collaboration, exchange knowledge, and ignite the spark of innovation needed to ensure the resilience and sustainability of our planet’s rich tapestry of life.
