The effects of Global Change on natural protected areas will be the topic of the symposium "Global Change and Protected Areas", organized by the Science and Technology Park of Abruzzo and the Government of the Abruzzo Region in Italy to be held in L'Aquila, 8-13 September 1999.
The conference highlights the input of global change on the economy of a region that has devoted one third of its territory to natural parks. The most relevant consequences will probably occur on the coastal erosions, in water resources and in ski resorts in the winter season.
Topics of interest:
Climatic and Environmental Changes
Impact on Biosphere and Hydrology
The Abruzzi Parks: a model case study
The conference will be held in the Medieval town of L'Aquila at the Congress Center of Hotel Duca degli Abruzzi. For further details the web site of the Conference can be accessed at www.aquila.infn.it/gblch
