  • EU ABS Regulation Training Workshop

    The EU is a Party to the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilisation. The EU ABS Regulation, which transposes into the EU legal order the compliance pillar of the Protocol, became applicable as of 12 October 2014. The principal obligations of the Regulation – i.e. Article 4 on due diligence, Article 7 on monitoring user compliance and Article 9 on checks on user compliance – will become applicable as of 12 October 2015. In this context it is important that those who utilise genetic resources (i.e. conduct research and development on the genetic and/or biological composition of genetic resources, including through the application of biotechnology) are aware of the obligations arising from the Regulation, and that they can take the necessary measures to ensure their activities are compliant.

  • Sustainable and green cities in the South

    Some mega-cities in the South have more inhabitants than  Belgium, but also have large slum areas. Smaller cities are confronted with unprecedented growth and city councils are grappling with providing a suitable infrastructure.  On the other hand cities are also often cited as the policy level where a green development is taking place. How can city planners and development aid avoid pitfalls from the past and create more sustainable and greener cities? The session will give an introduction to the current thinking and is illustrated with practical examples from over the globe.

  • Family farming: A dialogue towards more sustainable and resilient farming in Europe and the world

    2014 was designated the International Year of Family Farming at the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly. Led by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), it has the objective of raising the profile of family farming by focusing world attention on its role in alleviating hunger and poverty, providing food security and improving livelihoods, while protecting the environment and biodiversity. In this context, and given the importance of family farming within the European Union and the interlinked relation with farmers from all the world, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development is organising a conference on "Family farming: A dialogue towards more sustainable and resilient farming in Europe and the world"

    The theme of this year's Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, is "Nature – our health, our wealth". We expect about 8-9 sessions presenting Green Infrastructure examples and policies to illustrate various relevant topics. One session, " Jobs and growth through Green Infrastructure" will explicitly show how green infrastructure contributes to economic development and job creation.

    A number of initiatives will be presented to illustrate the opportunities and challenges of investing in green instead of grey infrastructure. How can investing in green infrastructure create and maintain both high-skilled and low-skilled jobs? What is the role of innovation? What new markets can emerge, in particular for SMEs? What are the benefits for the low-carbon economy? More information on http://ec.europa.eu/environment/greenweek/

  • The State of Nature in the EU - Small improvements but a long way to go...

    The State of Nature report provides an important snapshot of the current situation as regards conservation status and trends for over 2,000 species and habitat types protected under the two EU nature Directives. From this it is clear  that, while there is still a long way to go to reach to 2020 target, the Directives are managing to ‘hold the line’ across a significant part of Europe’s biodiversity. This is reflected in the fact that some of the species and habitats protected by the directives are beginning to show modest signs of improvement.

    Depuis de plusieurs années, la Division Nature et Forêts du Ministère de la Région Wallonne met en valeur les arbres et plus particulièrement les essences trouvées en Wallonie, dans le cadre de sa campagne "Semaine de l'Arbre".

    Ainsi, chaque année, un arbre ou un arbuste différent est mis à l'honneur. En 2007, il s'agit de la viorne.  Le Ministère de la Région Wallonne propose trois types d'actions:

    1. distribution de plants aux particuliers
    2. plantation dans un espace public
    3. ménagement d'un espace naturel

    Une administration communale peut mener, une, deux ou les trois actions simultanément. Tout autre promoteur (école, association,...) pourra mener l'action 2 ou l'action 3 ou les deux simultanément.

  • Stakeholder Consultation on the Final Evaluation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020

    Less than two years remain until the end of 2020 - the deadline to deliver on the biodiversity targets set by the global Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the EU Biodiversity strategy to 2020. Yet, recent reports indicate that humanity is not on track to halt the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services (See reports of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)).

    Biodiversity is essential for human wellbeing, the economy, as well as for our society’s capacity to address climate change and to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.

    The EU and its Member States are taking stock of efforts and achievements in their 6th National Report to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Debates are also gaining momentum on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, as part of the process launched at the 14th UN Biodiversity Conference of the Parties to the CBD in November 2018.

  • GYBN kick-off conference

    Be part of the Global Youth Biodiversity Network’s (GYBN) kick-off conference
    Livestream, discussions, online participation

    Due to the fact that we received MUCH more applications than we could provide invitations to Berlin - we wanted to create a platform for all young people engaged in the protection of biodiversity so that they can share their knowledge and experiences. In order to enable this wider range of environmentalists to participate to the conference an online platform has been set: now you can participate from your own computer! This is your chance to be part of it and get connected with young people from all over the world who share the same vision and walk through the same way to halt the loss of biodiversity. Be a part of the solution! Now! Just register here:

    https://meet31332461.adobeconnect.com/_a1070055801/gybn/event/registration.html
    After approving your registration we will send you a detailed program with the online participation guide that will help you through your participation.
    You need more information? www.naju.de/english/gybn


    If you are interested in GYBN, you’re also welcome to subscribe to our international mailing list at https://listi.jpberlin.de/mailman/listinfo/gybn
    If you wish to receive regular updates on Biodiversity and youth activities, you can also become a fan of GYBN on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thegybn

    About GYBN: Building a global youth coalition to halt the loss of Biodiversity!
    GYBN’ vision is to create a global platform that will enable young environmentalists from all parts of the world to connect in order to join forces for the protection of biological diversity on our planet. GYBN also aims to become the international coordination platform for youth participation in the CBD (Convention on Biological Diversity) and is committed to bring the opinions and positions of youth into the negotiations and make their collective voice heard. The establishment of GYBN has been prepared by an interim steering committee, consisting of young people from thirteen countries, which was formed shortly after CBD COP10 in October 2010. GYBN is officially supported by the CBD secretariat.

    About the GYBN Kick-Off meeting: 35 participants, 7 days, 1 goal
    The GYBN Kick-Off meeting will be hosted by NAJU (German Youth Association for the Protection of Nature) from August 21st to 27th in Berlin, Germany, and is organized in close coordination with the GYBN interim steering committee. Among others, the six-day conference will feature capacity building sessions and policy briefings on the CBD and the main issues on the agenda of COP11. Furthermore numerous workshops on topics like lobbying, organizing creative actions and campaigns as well as press- and public relations will be offered. However, the emphasis of the conference will lie on the establishment of GYBN and the preparation of youth participation at COP11. For this purpose participants will take part in a so called “Future Workshop” session and determine the structure, mandate and coordination etc. of GYBN and develop plans and political targets for meaningful youth participation at COP11.

    A group including European policy-makers, environmental experts and industry members were invited at a recent event to reflect on the question “Is there a role for innovation in the sustainable management of raw materials?”. The event was the first on this topic since the launch of the new Working Group on “Business and Raw Materials” under the European Parliament Intergroup on “Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development.”

  • Plastic in de oceaan - Wat is het probleem en wat kunnen we doen?

    Elk jaar belandt er ongeveer 8 miljoen ton aan plastics in de zeeën en oceanen, dit staat gelijk aan 35 scheepscontainers per uur! Stromingen en wind zorgen er voor dat plastic gevonden wordt van Antarctica tot de Stille Zuidzee en van het wateroppervlakte tot de zeebodem. In vele gevallen duurt het eeuwen vooraleer dit plastic vergaat. De impact is dan ook groot; meer dan 1400 diersoorten ondervinden de vaak dodelijke gevolgen van dit wereldwijde fenomeen. Vele diersoorten geraken verstrikt in plastic of zien het aan voor voedsel.

  • Plastic pollution in our ocean – Tackling a mammoth task

    Between 4 and 12 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. That is equivalent to about one shipping container filled with plastic dumped into the ocean every minute. Once in the ocean, plastic doesn’t disappear. Ocean currents and winds carry it to every corner of the planet and, on top of that, it often takes hundreds of years to decompose, accumulating in the water column or on the seafloor – often with deadly consequences. Up to 1,400 different species are affected by marine litter: they get entangled or injured by rubbish or confuse plastic with food. Once in the food chain, plastic threatens not only animals, but perhaps also humans.

  • Plastique dans l’océan – Quel est le problème et que pouvons-nous faire?

    Chaque année, entre 4.8 et 12.7 milliards kilogrammes de plastique sont rejetés dans l'océan, soit l’équivalent de 35 containeurs maritimes par heure. Une fois dans l'océan, le plastique ne disparaît pas. Les courants et les vents le transportent aux quatre coins de la planète et, en plus, il faut souvent des centaines d'années pour se décomposer. Le plastique donc s’accumule dans la colonne d'eau ou dans le grand fond - souvent avec des conséquences mortelles. Jusqu'à 1400 espèces différentes sont touchées par les déchets marins: elles s'emmêlent ou sont blessées par les déchets ou confondent le plastique et la nourriture. Une fois dans la chaîne alimentaire, le plastique menace non seulement les animaux, mais peut-être aussi les humains.

    Invasive alien species (IAS) are recognized as major drivers of biodiversity loss, but few causal relationships between IAS and species declines have been documented. In this study, authors compared the distribution (Belgium and Britain) and abundance (Belgium, Britain and Switzerland) of formerly common and widespread native ladybirds before and after the arrival of Harmonia axyridis, a globally rapidly expanding IAS.

  • Virunga, a film by Orlando Von Einsiedel (19:00-22:00)

    About the film

    In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most biodiverse places on Earth and home to the planet’s last remaining mountain gorillas. In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources.

    A powerful combination of investigative journalism and nature documentary, VIRUNGA is the incredible true story of a group of courageous people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa the world’s forgotten, and a gripping exposé of the realities of life in the Congo.

    Paul Duvigneaud (1913-1991)

    Professeur à l’Université Libre de Bruxelles, il aurait eu 100 ans en 2013.

    Il est l’auteur de La Synthèse écologique (1974), un des tout premiers livres d’écologie générale en langue française. L’ouvrage, réédité en 1980, traduit en de nombreuses langues, a connu un grand succès de librairie. Il reste un outil important pour l’enseignement, notamment grâce à son illustration de grande qualité.

    A cette occasion, l’Université Libre de Bruxelles, le Centre Paul Duvigneaud de documentation écologique et le Centre International pour la Ville, l’Architecture et le Paysage, organisent un symposium.

    L’objectif du Symposium est d’examiner comment la science écologique a évolué depuis la publication de la Synthèse écologique. Cette évolution concerne autant des changements dans les concepts et méthodes de l’écologie scientifique, mais aussi dans un rapprochement avec les sciences humaines, avec l’émergence du mot « environnement », du concept de service écosystémique et de la notion de développement durable.

    Le Symposium donnera lieu à l’édition d’un ouvrage « Vers une nouvelle Synthèse écologique - de l’écologie scientifique au développement durable ».

  • MIDIS / développement - Intégrer le genre dans les projets de coopération académique : Pourquoi ? Comment ?

    La place des femmes et le rôle qu'elles jouent dans le développement ont été trop peu valorisés par les analyses théoriques ou les approches politiques. Mais les choses évoluent : depuis les années 1970, la question est devenue de plus en plus centrale dans les réflexions internationales. Aujourd’hui, les institutions de développement reconnaissent l’importance et la nécessité de prendre en compte les rapports de genre dans les programmes de développement et dans les recherches en la matière, pour assurer à la fois le progrès démocratique, l’efficacité de l’aide et celle des politiques sectorielles.

    ABS potentially encompasses a large range of issues extending far beyond sole environmental matters, including market regulation and access, international trade, agriculture, health, development cooperation, research & development and innovation. As a consequence, the future implementation of the Nagoya Protocol could be relevant to several departments and several levels of competence in Belgium.

  • International day for biodiversity 2008

    Biodiversity and Agriculture - 22 May 2008

    Agriculture is a key example of how human activities have profound impacts on the ecosystems of our planet. This year’s theme for the International Day for Biological Diversity (IBD), “Biodiversity and Agriculture,” seeks to highlight the importance of sustainable agriculture not only to preserve biodiversity, but also to ensure that we will be able to feed the world, maintain agricultural livelihoods, and enhance human well being into the 21st century and beyond.

    Different activities will be organised in Belgium to commemorate this day. The CBD National Focal Point will issue a press release compilling the list of the events and gather all relevant information on the CHM website.

    A major debate on 'Biodiversity and Agriculture' will be organised during the "Foire de Libramont" end of July.

  • EKLIPSE Conference

    What is EKLIPSE?

    EKLIPSE is an EU-funded project that started in February 2016. The project aims to establish a robust and flexible long-term mechanism for policy support on issues related to Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, communicating and engaging a wide set of knowledge holders in its work and ensuring tailor-made outreach of results – to knowledge requesters and to society more broadly.

    The success of EKLIPSE and its resulting mechanism is in everyone’s hands: the ‘requesters’ who need to know what knowledge is out there to answer their policy or societal needs; the knowledge holders (be they scientists of other citizens) who want their knowledge to mean something; and the extensive networks working on biodiversity and ecosystem services who have the enthusiasm and knowledge to make the mechanism work in the long term.

  • BiodiversityKnowledge First Conference

    The conference aims to introduce and discuss broadly the approach of designing a Network of Knowledge (NoK) approach in the area of biodiversity and ecosystem services in Europe. At the heart of it is engaging different knowledge hubs and identify their interests when getting involved.
    The focus of the conference will be on identifying solutions and options for the NoK and identify steps to create a broad community of interest with it. For a detailed discussion, the project team will provide a green paper as basis prior to the conference. To back this with a practical perspective, the conference will also introduce the demonstration cases of the project that will test the processes of the NoK over the next year.
    On the last day, the conference will also discuss the European input into IPBES and other international developments.

  • World Wildlife Day - The future of wildlife is in our hands (3 March)

    Integral to the balance of nature, wildlife nurtures us with a sense of wonder and serves as a source of inspiration. Wildlife is also the basis of biodiversity. Biodiversity in the wild is just as important to our wellbeing as biodiversity in plants and animals used for human consumption. Wildlife is incremental to forestry, fishery and tourism livelihoods around the world. Quite simply, biodiversity keep ecosystems functional providing the ecosystem services that allow us to survive, get enough food to eat and make a living.


    The conservation and sustainable use of wildlife is therefore a critical component of sustainable development, and should be part of a comprehensive approach to achieving poverty eradication, food security and sustainable livelihoods.

    Bold and innovative action is urgently required if governments are to meet the globally-agreed Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and its Aichi Targets by 2020, says a United Nations progress report on the state of global biodiversity. Launched today one year before the halfway point of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity, Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO) 4 shows that there has been significant progress towards meeting some components of the majority of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. However, in most cases, additional action is required to keep the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020 on course.

    Green Infrastructure enables nature to deliver a range of benefits to ecosystems and people, including for health and quality of life. They are key to driving jobs and growth while tackling our environmental challenges head on. Many success cases demonstrate the value of investing in Green Infrastructure. That is why the European Commission in 2013 adopted a strategy promoting Green Infrastructure.

    In order to take stock of its implementation, and renew the political commitment of the different actors involved, the European Commission, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), in cooperation with Intergroups from the European Parliament, are co-organising a conference on "Green Infrastructure: A European success story" on 5 May 2015.

  • Biocarburants : quel avenir et quelle place en Belgique?

    Table ronde sur les biocarburants à l'Université Libre de Bruxelles.


    La vague des biocarburants déferle sur le monde. Du Brésil à la Suède, en passant par les Etats-Unis, de nombreux pays se « mettent au vert » pour diminuer les émissions de gaz à effet de serre et principalement pour réduire la dépendance énergétique liée aux combustibles fossiles.

    En Europe, l'objectif est double. D'un côté, augmenter progressivement la part des biocarburants dans l'essence (5,75 % en 2010 et 10 % en 2015). Et de l'autre, promouvoir l'utilisation du bioéthanol E85 et les véhicules adaptés, c'est-à-dire capables de rouler avec de l'essence sans plomb, de l'E85 ou les deux mélangés.
    Le potentiel de production des biocarburants est toutefois limité par les surfaces cultivables nécessaires, et les risques de compétition avec les usages alimentaires. C'est pour cette raison que la recherche se tourne aujourd'hui vers des technologies de seconde génération utilisant des déchets végétaux ainsi que des ressources non alimentaires comme la paille ou le bois. Leur production pose la question essentielle de leur utilisation.

    Dans ce contexte, des questions cruciales émergent : quelle sera la place des biocarburants dans le ''pool'' carburants ? Faudra-t-il adapter la technologie des moteurs ? Les biocarburants ouvrent-ils de nouveaux débouchés à l'agriculture ? Quels sont les autres débouchés pour leur utilisation et à quels coûts ? Quels sont les critères de choix ? De la réponse à ces questions découle l’avenir des biocarburants en Belgique. Autant de questions auxquelles de nombreux spécialistes essayeront d’apporter  des réponses concrètes.

  • Séminaire : Agriculture itinérante sur brûlis en RDC

    Dans les zones forestières, l'agriculture sur brûlis est l'agriculture paysanne par excellence en République Démocratique du Congo. Méthode d'agriculture particulièrement appropriée pour l'approvisionnement alimentaire des populations et capable de répondre aux besoins humains tout en ayant peu d'impact sur la conservation, il apparaît que ce mode d'agriculture est devenu, sous l'effet de la pression démographique, une des principales causes de déforestation.

  • 2015 Green Week : Nature and Biodiversity

    The theme of this year's Green Week, the biggest annual conference on European environment policy, is "Nature – our health, our wealth". We expect about 8-9 sessions presenting Green Infrastructure examples and policies to illustrate various relevant topics. One session, " Jobs and growth through Green Infrastructure" will explicitly show how green infrastructure contributes to economic development and job creation.

    A number of initiatives will be presented to illustrate the opportunities and challenges of investing in green instead of grey infrastructure. How can investing in green infrastructure create and maintain both high-skilled and low-skilled jobs? What is the role of innovation? What new markets can emerge, in particular for SMEs? What are the benefits for the low-carbon economy? More information on http://ec.europa.eu/environment/greenweek/

    Supported by the Belgian Focal Point for the Global Taxonomy Initiative, researchers of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences have described a new species of giant walking sticks. The newcomer, Phryganistria tamdaeoensis, gets its name from the beautiful Tam Dao National Park in a mountainous area in the northwestern part of Vietnam. Living specimens are on display at the vivarium of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels.

  • Use of Genetic resources - the impact of a new regulatory framework on your R&D activities

    workable system for access to genetic resources is crucial for the future of our life sciences and biotech companies. A new international legal framework has been set up, known as the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits arising from their Uitilisation. Since the adoption of the Nagoya Protocol, the matter of so called Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) has grown in importance. Regional and national implementing laws are currently under discussion. On October 2015, the EU Regulation 511/2014 of 16 April 2014 on compliance measures on ABS will come into full force. Work on additional (sector specific) guidance is ongoing. The federal and regional authorities are currently also establishing the Belgian legal framework on ABS.
    An ideal momentum to learn about this new regulatory framework, exchange views with others, chech wether you are compliant with these new rules and to take part in the ongoing discussions.

  • EU ABS Regulation Training Workshop

    The EU is a Party to the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilisation. The EU ABS Regulation, which transposes into the EU legal order the compliance pillar of the Protocol, became applicable as of 12 October 2014. The principal obligations of the Regulation – i.e. Article 4 on due diligence, Article 7 on monitoring user compliance and Article 9 on checks on user compliance – will become applicable as of 12 October 2015. In this context it is important that those who utilise genetic resources (i.e. conduct research and development on the genetic and/or biological composition of genetic resources, including through the application of biotechnology) are aware of the obligations arising from the Regulation, and that they can take the necessary measures to ensure their activities are compliant.

  • OCEANS The Future of the Blue Planet

    Oceans and seas are of crucial importance to the EU. Healthy oceans are home to a very rich biodiversity, act as climate-regulators, offer food security and contribute to the European economy, offering jobs to nearly 3.5 million people.

    However, they are under increasing pressure from over-fishing, coastal eutrophication, marine litter and climate change. They need to be managed sustainably in order to conserve the fragile marine ecosystems.

    The first-ever report of its kind presents mounting and worrying evidence that the biodiversity that underpins our food systems is disappearing – putting the future of our food, livelihoods, health and environment under severe threat.

    Once lost, warns FAO’s State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture report, launched today, biodiversity for food and agriculture – i.e. all the species that support our food systems and sustain the people who grow and/or provide our food – cannot be recovered.

  • FRDO-conferentie : klimaatverandering en gezondheid

    Onder leiding van prof. Jean-Pascal van Ypersele (UCL)

    De klimaatverandering brengt  risico’s  mee, zoals hittegolven, extreme droogte, bosbranden en bepaalde vormen van luchtverontreiniging, maar ook  extreme neerslag en veranderende seizoenen… In deze FRDO-conferentie zal nagegaan worden hoe dit een impact kan hebben op de gezondheid, in Europa en in ons land. Wat zijn de kosten zowel op het vlak van menselijk lijden als financieel voor de samenleving? Welk risico’s lopen kwetsbare groepen als zwangere vrouwen, kinderen, ouderen, mensen met allergieën,... en welk beleid  moet gevoerd worden om hen te beschermen? Hoe anticiperen op deze gezondheidsrisico’s,  zowel voor deze groepen als voor de bevolking in het algemeen? Welk beleid met een positieve impact voor de gezondheid en het klimaat kan gevoerd worden? Hoe win-winsituaties creëren voor de volksgezondheid, het klimaat, het milieu en de overheidsuitgaven ? Dit zijn een aantal van de vragen die aan bod zullen komen tijdens deze conferentie.

  • Financing and biopiracy : The challenges of the next UN Biodiversity Summit (COP11, India)

    PRESENTATION

    Biodiversity represents our most valuable natural heritage and its conservation is one of our most urgent challenges. Beyond its immaterial value, biodiversity plays a vital role for human beings. Water purification, oxygen and carbon recycling, soil fertility, food production, drugs development, and general wealth protection are all examples of benefits provided freely by a healthy biodiversity. Yet human activities and our development choices in particular in the last 50 years have very often led to irreversible loss.

    Biodiversity services are provided for free but their loss has a cost - a huge one: around 50 billion euros a year and up to 14.000 billions euros by 2050. Biodiversity erosion is particularly alarming in developing countries with the constant plunder of their natural richness and corollary the exploitative appropriation of indigenous forms of traditional knowledge, the so-called biopiracy.

    In 2010, the COP10 on Biodiversity in Nagoya (Japan) agreed on a long-awaited Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) aiming at putting an end to biopiracy. This new legal instrument was a step forward, yet the whole issue of resource mobilisation for biodiversity protection was left aside.

    In a few weeks time, in October 2012, the COP11 in Hyderabad (India) will have to look at the best way to implement the ABS Protocol and turn it into a successful and efficient tool against biopiracy. In addition the international community is called upon by several civil society organisations to deliver on resource mobilisation and innovative sources of financing for biodiversity protection before it is too late.

    At Hyderabad, how will the challenge of fighting against biopiracy be tackled? Will measures on resource mobilisation live up to the high expectations?

  • In Loving Memory of Frédéric Chemay (1961-2014)
    It is with deep sadness that the Belgian biodiversity community has learned of the passing of Frédéric Chemay in the night of 30th September 2014. He was 53.

    As Hubert Reeves ever said, “Regarder “loin”, c’est regarder “tôt”” (Looking far is anticipating). This quote seems to have been written for Frédéric. Those who knew him will indeed remember him for his foresight in environmental issues and for always keeping his mind alert. He never stopped developing new projects, opening up new areas for debate and action.

    He will also be remembered by his colleagues for his “struggling” with computers, his very particular sense of order and punctuality, his kindness and his good laughs.

    We all will keep in mind his enthusiasm and untiring dedication to the environment for so many years.

    With the installation of already 91 windmills, the first two offshore wind farms on the Thorntonbank (C-Power project) and the Blighbank (Belwind project) are nearing completion. Since such major constructions are known to affect the marine environment, a mandatory monitoring programme keeps a close eye on possible major impacts. This year’s integrated report, written by the Management Unit of the Mathematical Model of the North Sea (of the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences), in cooperation with the Marine Biology Research Group (UGent), INBO and ILVO, confirms wind farms to be hotspots for biodiversity and to be affecting seabirds and marine mammals.

  • Mineral Extraction versus Ecology

    After a workshop organised 27 November 2015 and a series of excursions to different types of raw materials extraction conducted this year, the ad-hoc working group observed that former or reclaimed mining sites regain valuable ecological functions and may even attain a higher level of biodiversity than the original lands before mining. Multiple former extraction sites are transformed into Natura 2000 or other protected sites, or even are becoming new wilderness areas. The ad-hoc working group has concluded that mining and ecology should become allies and agre
