International team of scientists to meet in Panama to discuss future of the world's forests
Date:2/28/2010

Leading researchers from around the world will meet in March at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama to discuss the first outputs from a global research program supported by the HSBC Climate Partnership1 to study the impact of climate change on the world's forests.

The conference, 'Taking Stock', co-hosted by STRI and the Earthwatch Institute, marks the mid-point of a five-year partnership which employs a unique participatory 'citizen science' model: HSBC employees are working alongside scientists to collect data from five distinct forest sites around the world (US, UK, Brazil, China, India).

At the conference researchers will describe findings that will directly contribute to the global understanding of forest ecosystems and the management of watersheds to quantify the environmental serviceslike water provision, carbon storage, and biodiversity maintenancethat tropical forests provide. The research is built on protocols that have been in place for more than 30 years and the latest analytical and technological advances.

WHEN: Media Day on March 1

WHO: Speakers from Earthwatch Institute, STRI, HSBC, Oxford University and more for full event program visit http://www.stri.org/

WHERE: The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's Earl S. Tupper Research and Conference Center, Panama City, Panama

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Link to a live webcast of the conference starting 1 March from http://www.stri.org
  • Debut of a new film from STRI highlighting this unique NGO-corporate partnership
  • Q and A Panel discussion and opportunity for one to one interviews with researchers

Since the launch of the HSBC Climate Partnership in 2007, over 900 HSBC 'climate champions' have worked alongside experts from Earthwatch, STRI and local research partners, at forest plots around the world. This contribution is equiva
