8-20 September 2014, Beijing, China
Environmental and ecosystems services sustainability are under serious threat at the combined pressure of climate change and intense human use of natural resources. Meeting these science challenges requires understanding of the physical science basis of climate change, consideration of its impacts on all spheres of human activity, and development of policy strategies and actions.
The 2014 international training on ecosystem-climate interactions will provide young researchers and practitioners from Asia-Pacific countries with advanced knowledge and skills in this fast-moving field, and to enhance the environmental capacity building for the regional sustainable development.
Sponsored by APN under CBA2014-07NSY(B&ES)-Jia and organised by START Regional Center for East Asia (TEA), the training sessions will cover multi-platform observation, trends and impacts analysis, and ecosystem and climate modelling. The curriculum will comprise lectures, seminars, along with site visits and excursions in CAS (www.cas.cn) research facilities and field stations.
