International Workshop "From the Stream to the Coast: Valuing Ecosystem Services to promote the Sustainable Development of River Basins" | 8-9 Nov 2019

CITAB and CIIMAR are working together in this relevant and pertinent event on the subjects of Ecosystem services: assessment and valuation under global change; Smart and creative management: Linking nature and culture; Assessment of regulating services provided by ecosystems from catchment to coast; Artificial intelligence & semantic web-supported collaborative modelling for Ecosystem Services.

CITAB and CIIMAR are working together to prepare this relevant and pertinent event, where important topics were selected about that subject for the two days, namely: - Ecosystem services: assessment and valuation under global change - Smart and creative management: Linking nature and culture - Assessment of regulating services provided by ecosystems from catchment to coast - Artificial intelligence & semantic web-supported collaborative modelling for Ecosystem Services. - The main goal is to gather information and views on the valuation of ecosystem services from various regions of the Douro River basin from the stream to the coast, and to understand how this approach based on ecosystem services can be used to support decision-making. The workshop will be attended by several invited key speakers, as indicated in the attached program and with collaborative sessions to integrate participants' different views on the usefulness of these results in real river basin management scenarios and coastal zones, and providing the opportunity of interacting with several interdisciplinary groups, exchange experience, improve knowledge, fortifying relationships and network and participating in the discussion about the services of the ecosystems. On this occasion we also would like to extend our sincere thanks to our partners and sponsors that believe in this project and support this important event. We are looking forward to seeing and welcoming you to UTAD.
