Early detection of Global Change 'symptoms' on the protected areas to be discussed in Italy

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.

Climatic and Environmental Changes

  • Climatic change at global and regional scales
  • Air pollution
  • Paleoclimatic perspectives on environmental changes
  • Protected areas and climatic changes: early signs of global change
