2021 World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling
May 31, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 4, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
The theme of next conference is “Tipping ecological-economic systems towards sustainability”. Many natural resources around the world are being overexploited for short term economic benefits, leaving ecosystems on the brink of collapse. This is especially true for marine systems where overfishing is a continuous and globally increasing ecological and economic issue, also resulting in impacts on society and culture. Marine ecosystems are threatened to cross tipping points, leading to abrupt changes in recruitment, biomass, and consequently in catches. The aim of the conference is to discuss how to change ecological-economic system dynamics towards long-term sustainability.
