Expected Impact And Outcomes

Overall, we expect the workshop to contribute to resilience-oriented management and governance towards the ecological sustainability of natural and social-ecological systems and the wellbeing of the communities. Specifically, we expect to advance the knowledge on how to valuate ecosystem services of those ecosystems, by objectively developing practical methodologies applied to the societal goods and benefits provided by a natural system of high national and international strategic interest, using the Douro River basin as a case study.
One open access position paper will be produced, as well as a technical report to be delivered to the Douro River basin stakeholders (policy makers, managers, wine producers, touristic agents, fisheries, agroforestry, livestock, municipal decision-makers, etc).

This workshop is supported by National Funds by FCT – Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, under the project UID/AGR/04033/2019 and partially by IF/00919/2015
