Description de l'événement
Sustainable management of marine ecosystems and biodiversity : status and perspectives. Courses given by Dr. Virginie Tilot

À propos de cet événement

There is an urgent need to adopt new approaches, integrated in content and precautionary and anticipatory in ambit, for management and development of marine ecosystems at global levels. Through the interconnectedness of the ocean’s physical, geological and ecological systems closely linked to the atmosphere, dynamics of earth’s structure, impacts of river basins and associated systems, the inter-disciplinarity and holistic perspective fostered in Sustainability Science is a reality with multidisciplinary explorations of the sea, the last frontier being the deep sea and high seas, the assessment of human impacts, the building of Strategies such as marine spatial planning and management.

The main objective of this series of lectures is to analyse interactions between social, economic and marine ecosystems as well as focus on the paradigms, concepts and underlying assumptions in which these are grounded. The programme also aims to enable to formulate governance strategies for complex sustainability challenges, in particular to train to protect, restore and create engineered and natural systems that are sustainable in all disciplines in an integrated perspective. The logical framework responds to the present needs recognized by Industries, Governments, Academics, NGOs, and communities to address complex social, environmental, and economic problems holistically.

Virginie Tilot is a senior scientist involved in specific topics of research, teaching and training as detailed further. Senior advisor for diverse national and international organizations, institutions, universities in particular for agencies of the United Nations (UNEP, UNDP, FAO, Unesco/IOC...), the European Commission, international NGOs and universities. She is an expert in marine and coastal environment inventories, assessment, management/conservation of the biodiversity and sustainable development, marine spatial planning and ocean governance, coral reefs, high seas, deep sea environment, environmental education and training, assessment of social and economic aspects of managing natural resources and habitats
