Motivations and goals

Biodiversity and ecosystems are experiencing accelerating changes with some alarming trends and largely unknown consequences. A major cause of these threats on biodiversity observed in many ecosystems is related to human's development and anthropogenic activities including fishing, agriculture or hunting. The changes in biodiversity in turn affect human activities relying on it and alter important economic commodities (typically food, energy, drugs) or services (typically tourism, pollination, carbon cycle, water cycling) provided by the biological diversity and renewable resources. As a consequence, the sustainable management of biodiversity is now questioned.

In this context, the IPBES (Intergovernmental Science Policy Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services), an ``IPCC-like'' platform launched in 2010, will play a major role to articulate the scientific knowledge on the changes and degradation of the natural world, with knowledge on effective solutions and public policies. In particular, the effectiveness of management instruments including quotas, protected areas, taxes, etc. has to be considered in both ecological and socio-economic dimensions. Thus bio-economic quantitative methods, indicators, models, management and scenario methods are needed.

The aim of the workshop Mathematics of Ecological Economics  is to foster cooperation and information interchange among those engaged in the mathematical modeling of systems related to the management of natural renewable resources and scenarios of biodiversity (marine and terrestrial). Such goal requires interdisciplinary exchanges between mathematics, ecology, economics and computer sciences. Particular attention will be paid to the following applied fields: fisheries, agricultural systems, forest management, wildlife management and invasive species issues. Mathematics -- by providing integrated concepts, models and methods -- should favor the interactions between these applied disciplines. In particular, of interest will be the use of various methods in different mathematical domains such as optimal control, stabilization methods, viable control and invariance methods, stochastic and robust control, adaptive control, multi-criteria approaches, game theory.
