    Our next webinar will take place on July 27, 4:00 to 5:30 PM CET and is organized in cooperation with the GIZ Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector Project. The session will provide an overview on fisheries certification with a focus on discussing its applicability for small-scale fisheries. Audun Lem, Deputy-Director of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department will give a keynote speech on fisheries certification. Hoyt Peckham will present the SmartFish solution on reducing overfishing and improving the livelihoods of artisanal fishers in Mexico. Camila Zambrano Esguerra, Fondo Acción will highlight the key success factors of the EcoGourmet project, which sensitizes small-scale fishermen as well as consumers about sustainable fisheries.

    Stockholm Resilience Centre together with the Resilience Alliance are excited to welcome you to the upcoming Resilience 2017 conference in Stockholm. Following previous Resilience conferences, held on triennial basis since 2008, Resilience 2017 will discuss resilience as a key lens for biosphere-based sustainability science. It will reflect back on the scientific progress made, and to set out exciting future directions for research. A main focus will be on global sustainability challenges and opportunities, which today are heavily influenced by the speed, scale and connectivity of the Anthropocene.

    La Serena-Coquimbo, Chile

    Marine Protected Areas are extremely dynamic and energetic environments where humans meet the ocean. Fishing, aquaculture, tourism, recreation, navigation, sailing and scientific research are just a few of the activities that take place in MPAs. Given the complex nature of MPAs, participants from multidisciplinary backgrounds will reconvene in La Serena, Chile for IMPAC4, an international conference with a program that covers a wide array of topics, including management tools, conservation biology, ecology, fisheries, climate change, monitoring, enforcement, community development, communications, education, business administration, and much more!

    During four full days, plus an initial welcome evening, recent activities and trends in MPA management and science will be presented and discussed. A more detailed program will be available soon once principal topics and streams have been defined.

    "The World Conference on Marine Biodiversity (WCMB) has become the major focal assembly to share research outcomes, management and policy issues, and discussions on the role of biodiversity in sustaining ocean ecosystems. Arranged on a 3 - 4 year cycle, prior WCMB meetings (Valencia, Spain; Aberdeen, Scotland; Qingdao, China) have each attracted leading specialists from around the world, and catalyzed numerous sidebar sessions on marine biodiversity issues.

    The 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity will be held at the Palais des congrès de  Montréal, Québec, Canada, from May 13-16, 2018. This meeting will bring together scientists, practitioners, and policy makers to discuss and advance our understanding of the importance and current state of biodiversity in the marine environment. Through a mix of keynote sessions, contributed talks and posters, and bookable venues for focused meetings, the conference program will address marine biodiversity across a deliberately wide range of relevant sectors. Participation will be encouraged from the broadest possible range of stakeholder groups from academics to industry."
