Understanding Ecological and Social Resilience
in Island Systems: Informing Policy and
Sharing Lessons for Management
9-11 April 2013
New York, NY
American Museum of Natural History
The American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation and partners will unite local resource managers, researchers, island leaders, policy makers, and leading conservation professionals at our Spring Symposium UNDERSTANDING ECOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL RESILIENCE IN ISLAND SYSTEMS: INFORMING POLICY AND SHARING LESSONS FOR MANAGEMENT. Presenters and attendees will share experiences on how island systems have resisted or recovered from major disturbances while also identifying what information is needed to better inform planning and policy for resilience in the future.
Those interested in presenting POSTERS on specific case studies on ecological resilience, social resilience, or the interaction between the two to a diverse audience of practitioners are invited to submit an abstract.
SYMPOSIUM REGISTRATION: US$200
Registration includes admission to three days of presentations, discussions, and working groups; poster session and reception; lunches and break-time refreshments; general admission to the American Museum of Natural History; and discounts in Museum shops.
This symposium will examine characteristics, qualities, and processes that may foster resilience for coastal and marine systems as well as explore interactions, linkages, and feedback loops in complex social-ecological systems and what this means for management.
Practitioners will gain insight into how to promote resilience of coastal systems, particularly in tropical small island nations, and strengthen networks among island leaders, international scientists, and policy makers.
