Baker Consultants’ Carlos Abrahams joins CIEEM debate panel

This year’s CIEEM spring conference next week is entitled “Long-term ecological research projects: Using evidence to inform practice”.

Baker Consultants’ technical director Carlos Abrahams is to join a debate panel, alongside four other peers, discussing the link between ecological research and ecological management. You can sign up via the CIEEM website to take part in the event on 16th March 2021.

As ecologists we are pressured to deliver to ‘real world’ deadlines and to meet targets set by stakeholders and clients. The panel that has been assembled by CIEEM for this conference on 16 March 2021, will explore how practicing ecology consultants can balance these commercial needs against keeping an objective view on what the evidence of long-term monitoring activities is telling us as ecologists.

Focussing on looking at evidence from long-term ecological research in a number of differing habitats, delegates will learn about new approaches in delivering biodiversity net gain.  Carlos will be participating in the midday session where the panel will discuss, “Is the link between ecological research and ecological management stretched to breaking point?”

You can find out more about the day-long programme of events and sign up via the CIEEM website.
