Mentoring program

There will be a mentoring program as part of IMBIZO lV,  where more established scientists will be matched with students and early-career researchers working in a similar field. Mentors can give advice on research ideas, assist with fine-tuning conference presentations, and can help with networking at the IMBIZO. There will be a “lunch with the…

Workshop 4

From regime shifts to novel systems – evaluating the social-ecological implications of lasting ecosystem changes for resource management Regime shifts, involving large-scale and abrupt changes in ecosystem structure and function, have been observed in many marine ecosystems. A major question regarding regime shifts is whether alternative stable states, that would render recovery to the original…

Workshop 3

Integrated modelling to support assessment and management of marine social-ecological systems in the face of global change Policy-and decision-makers need assessments of status and trends in marine habitats, species and ecosystems to ensure human activities in the marine environment remain sustainable, particularly in the face of global change in the Earth and social systems. This requirement…

Workshop 2

Coastal upwelling ecosystems as models for interdisciplinary studies of climate and global change Changes in climate and increasing human pressure are threatening the coastal oceans. This workshop addresses the challenges for coastal oceans in the 21st century, using coastal upwelling ecosystems as models.  Upwelling systems cover less than 3% of the world ocean surface but…
