5a semana de la Diversidad Biológica

Suelos sanos para una vida sana

 La Comisión Nacional para el Conocimiento y Uso de la Biodiversidad CONABIO los invita a sumarse a la 5ª Semana de la Diversidad Biológica que se celebrará del 20 al 24 de mayo del año en curso.

 Este año las actividades giran en torno a los temas del Año Internacional de la Diversidad Biológica con el lema “Diversidad biológica para el desarrollo sostenible” y el Año Internacional de los Suelos, que ha sido decretado por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Alimentación y la Agricultura. El lema que enmarcará esta edición es: “Suelos sanos para una vida sana”.

 Por lo anterior, convocamos a realizar  actividades de divulgación con este tema.  El propósito es aumentar las actividades de difusión para que todos conozcamos la situación de la diversidad biológica en nuestro país y participemos en su manejo sustentable, restauración y conservación.

 El año pasado, en la 4ª edición participaron 29 de los 32 estados, con más de 200 actividades. Con el tema de este año no dudamos en que habrá oportunidad de que se sumen más actividades  a esta convocatoria. Organiza un evento que ayude al público a reflexionar sobre la naturaleza y en particular sobre la biodiversidad del suelo de algún sitio especial.
Registra tus eventos en la página oficial donde también encontrarás  material descargable como apoyo a tus actividades.

AZOREAN BIODIVERSITY GROUP (cE3c)
POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS – DEMONSTRATION OF INTEREST
The Azorean Biodiversity Group (cE3c – Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes) will open several Post-Doc positions during 2015 and 2016. The number and timing of these positions will depend on the availability of competitive candidates. We are looking for outstanding, highly motivated scientists working on the following research areas:
 – “Island Macroecology and Conservation”.
In recent projects we have generated some very large and comprehensive biodiversity datasets for many field sites in Azores (projects BALA, EDEN, ISLAND-BIODIV, MOVECLIM, ATLANTISMAR, IMPACTBIO). We aim now to perform a synthesis project to bring together these datasets for combined spatial based analysis. The kinds of questions we are interested in are looking at the effect of global changes on biodiversity and ecosystem services and comparing the importance of different environmental drivers of alpha and beta diversity between trophic levels and at different spatial scales.
The research should contribute to the solution of urgent environmental problems and H2020 challenges. The researchers will work in Azores (Univ. of Azores), to carry out long-term research (36-72 months), and amounts to c. 1650 EUR per month, which includes contribution towards social security and liability insurance. Seed money will be available to facilitate the establishment of these research lines and it is expected that the candidates apply to national and international funds to conduct long-term research within Azorean Biodiversity Group (cE3c).
Candidates profile:

México redujo 4.5% emisiones de gas de efecto invernadero: Semarnat

El secretario del Medio Ambiente afirma que México destacó en las negociaciones de la Conferencia de las Partes, en Perú, por su llamado a la urgencia y el ejemplo de acción concreta. Ante el reto mundial de dar una respuesta más eficiente para enfrentar el fenómeno del cambio climático, el secretario del Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (Semarnat), Juan José Guerra Abud, anunció que México cuenta con nuevas medidas ecológicas para cuantificar el comportamiento de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero. “Según esta nueva metodología, el Instituto Nacional de Ecología y Cambio Climático está calculando que en el 2013 ya México está reduciendo, en función al año 2010, un 4.5% de sus emisiones de gas de efecto invernadero”, afirmó. Al resaltar los logros obtenidos durante la Conferencia de las Partes (COP 20) realizada hace unos días en Lima, Perú, el secretario del Medio Ambiente dijo que México destacó en las negociaciones e intervenciones de alto nivel por su llamado a la urgencia y el ejemplo de acción concreta, pero particularmente por sus aportaciones de más de 10 millones de dólares al Fondo Verde para el Clima y 20 millones adicionales al Fondo Global del Ambiente. Detalló que el encuentro realizado del 1 al 12 de diciembre concluyó con importantes decisiones que permitirán cumplir con el objetivo acordado a mediano plazo de que la temperatura del planeta no suba en promedio más allá de 2 grados.

What is Horizon 2020?

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.

Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.

Horizon 2020 is open to everyone, with a simple structure that reduces red tape and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach makes sure new projects get off the ground quickly – and achieve results faster.

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation will be complemented by further measures to complete and further develop the European Research Area. These measures will aim at breaking down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation.
