DescriptionThe ClimEco4 programme will focus on linking indices of climate change, climate impact, and ecosystem services, to socio-economic indices and policy information. Information will include how indices are constructed, used, and combined to inform policy and decision-making in the context of climate-ecosystem interactions. There will be 'hands-on' practical sessions to apply the concepts covered in lectures, using databases, indices and models. During group work, participants will select and develop indicators, evaluate trade-offs and analyse their application and use for the ecosystem.
