The mechanisms identified on day one have been input to the collaborative fund project ‘Mechanisms Underpinning Climate Change Impacts on Global Biodiversity’. They have been used as part of the key-words for the literature review, and form a framework within which to structure the climate change mechanisms identified in the literature for subsequent reporting. This project has also benefited more widely from the discussions held at the workshop.
The main conclusions from the workshop have been used to produce a policy-focussed summary. An accompanying poster was also produced and presented at the Planet Under Pressure 2012 conference, held in London on the 26th-29th March, an international conference with about 3,000 delegates to input to the Rio+20 conference agenda. Both documents may be used to promote the work and thinking to a wider and non-scientific audience.
In addition to these tangible outputs, the discussions held at the workshop developed new linkages between conservation scientists and conservationists, and strengthened existing ones. The benefits of these will be difficult to quantify, but have increased the profile of CCI amongst a range of academics and policy makers around the UK, and more widely.
