Event Details

The City of Melbourne is hosting a Biodiversity Research and Monitoring Forum at the Community Hub at the Dock on the 13th June 2017.

In consultation with a range of stakeholders and the community, the City of Melbourne have been developing a Biodiversity Research and Monitoring Framework to guide the collection, analysis, and interpretation of relevant data required to form a baseline of species, vegetation communities, and habitats. This will be supported by the upcoming Nature in the City Strategy that will guide the next 10 years of planning, development, and management of the city’s biodiversity and ecosystems. The specific objectives of this one day event are as follows:

 

1) Obtain input and critical review of the City of Melbourne’s Biodiversity Research and Monitoring Framework.

2) Provide opportunities for collaboration amongst researchers and end-users from different institutions who work within the City of Melbourne.

3) Ensure that research is ‘publicised’ to relevant areas of the City of Melbourne to provide maximum uptake and adoption of outcomes.

4) Highlight relevant City of Melbourne datasets to researchers and introduce the City of Melbourne open-data portal.

 

The forum will include an introduction to the Nature in the City Strategy and the Biodiversity Research and Monitoring Framework, spoken and poster presentations by researchers who have worked within the City of Melbourne or who have conducted research of relevance to the City of Melbourne, and finish with a facilitated discussion.

 

Who is invited?

The City of Melbourne are casting a wide net and encourage all who are involved in research or monitoring that is relevant to the Nature in the City Strategy to express their interest in participating – this can include projects at the concept stage, projects that are underway, or projects that have been completed.

You are invited to participate in this forum in one of three ways:

1)    Give a presentation on your research that is relevant to Nature in the City.

2)    Attend and participate in the discussion.

Please indicate in your registration if you wish to present a spoken or poster presentation of your research and include a 200 word summary of your presentation.

Please ensure your summary (and presentation) focuses on: (i) findings that are relevant to the City of Melbourne management decisions; (ii) highlight opportunities for synergy amongst researchers and the City of Melbourne; and (iii) identify opportunities for improved processes or procedures.

If there are others within your organisation that may have relevant ideas or research themes, please forward this invitation onto them.
