The conference aims to promote and support evidence-based approaches to environmental management and high quality syntheses of evidence.

Syntheses like these can help decision-makers to better conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services. The conference will cover science, policy, and practice from local to global scales.

Two calls are now open for proposals for sessions and training events as well as abstracts for talks and posters. Proposals must relate to the environment and sustainable management of biodiversity and ecosystems (e.g. in agriculture, forestry, fisheries), and may encompass multidisciplinary topics particularly related to human wellbeing, international development and the sustainable development goals (e.g. biodiversity and health, green tourism, impact of life-cycles of products, ecotoxicology, impact of biotechnologies).
