Assessing ecosystem risks: The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems

This webinar originally aired on 30 June 2020.

Presented by: Radhika Murti and Marcos Valderrábano of IUCN and David Obura of CORDIO East Africa/IUCN Coral Specialist Group

Rapid climate change, increasing risks of disasters, biodiversity loss … where is the world heading to? In this changing world, reliable assessments of ecosystem status serve to raise awareness about threats to ecosystems and the resulting impacts on human well-being, as well as to demonstrate how improved ecosystem management can reduce risks, enhance resilience, and promote adaptation. The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems is a scientifically robust and global standard for how we assess the status of ecosystems while contributing to address current challenges. What differentiates the Red List of Ecosystems from other methods? Join us to learn more about this tool, real cases, and its applications beyond conservation areas.
