October 5th to 6th the “2012 Berlin Conference on Evidence for Sustainable Development” will be held. This will be the 11th conference in the series of European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change. This series of conferences started in Berlin in 2001.
One of the aims of this conference is to bring together scholars from different strands of research that produce data to support decision making for sustainable development. Policy makers and practitioners working are also invited to the conference. Some important topics will be: “How can the research process be organised to develop evidence that is considered relevant and timely in the political process to meet the challenges of sustainable development?” and “How can the policy-science interface be organised in a way that such scientific evidence is taken into consideration?”
The conference starts on Friday, October 5th at 9:30 a.m. and will end on Saturday, October 6th at 7:30 p.m. The conference takes place in the Henry-Ford-Building at the Freie Universität Berlin. This is located in the Dahlem area in the South-Western district of Berlin-Zehlendorf. On the link below you can have a look at the conference program.
