Transborder Multilevel Governance of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

Submitted by viktar

The final TERRA Workshop on Transborder Multilevel Governance of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services was co-organised by Pskov State University, St. Petersburg State University, and Erda RTE оn March 24-25 in Pskov.

We have discussed the transborder bioregionalization in the context of biodiversity conservation and management of ecosystem services, in particular referring to management and policy tools, instruments and practices advancing transborder cooperation over these issues, as well as advancing our understanding of borderland socio-ecological systems.

The event was organised in the framework of Erasmus+ TERRA project.
We live-streamed the workshop on TERRA Youtube Channel.
