CEM publishes a wide array of publications on various topics in Ecosystem Management. Please find a selection of our most recent publications below, or go directly to the Ecosystem Management Series or Publications on Nature-based Solutions.

Technical guidelines for the design and management of participatory connectivity conservation and restoration projects at the landscape scale in Latin America

Technical guidelines for the design and management of participatory connectivity conservation and restoration projects at the landscape scale in Latin America

Herrera Fernández, Bernal

This document recounts the authors’ experience in participatory conservation processes that seek terrestrial biodiversity connectivity. It synthesizes at least a decade of research and practice. Its documentation of this experience hopefully can contribute to the conservation and restoration of ecological connectivity in other parts of Latin America and the world.


Nature-based solutions to address global societal challengesNature-based solutions to address global societal challenges

Cohen-Shacham, E. Janzen, C. Maginnis, Stewart Walters, Gretchen

This report has been prepared as part of an effort by IUCN to define its position on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) and plan for future work to advance this concept and support effective implementation of NbS to enhance ecosystem services provision and address societal challenges. The report proposes a definitional framework for NbS, including a set of general principles for any NbS intervention. The report also defines the scope of NbS as an umbrella concept embracing a number of different ecosystem-based approaches. English version

Water in DrylandsWater in drylands

Barchiesi, Stefano Dalton, James Davies, Jonathan Laban, Peter Ogali, Claire J. Welling, Rebecca

This study presents some lessons from a selection of IUCN interventions in dryland areas that have adapted to a greater or lesser extent to the conditions of drylands, notably focusing on water management to deal with scarcity and variability. The study is intended as a means of capturing lessons learned from these interventions on the challenges and opportunities for improving water development in drylands. It is primarily a learning document compiled by the IUCN Secretariat, with technical advice from the Dryland Ecosystems Thematic Group of the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management. The document will also be shared with IUCN members and partners to catalyse deeper thinking and more effective action on water interventions in drylands as a first step in establishing improved systematic approaches and tools for influencing policy and investment regarding water management in drylands. English version

Principles and Guidelines for Integrating Ecosystem-based Approaches to Adaptation in Project and Policy DesignPrinciples and Guidelines for Integrating Ecosystem-based Approaches to Adaptation in Project and Policy Design

Andrade Pérez, Angela Córdoba Muñoz, Rocío Dave, Radhika Girot, Pascal Herrera Fernández, Bernal Munrol, Robert Oglethorpe, J. (Judy) Paaby, Pía Pramova, Emilia Watson, James Vergara, Walter

Ecosystem-based approaches to reduce social vulnerability are a promising option for sustainable and e cient adaptation to climate change. Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) is part of overall adaptation, and takes into account multiple social, economic and cultural co-bene ts for local communities. EbA encompasses adaptation policies and measures that take into account the role of ecosystem services in reducing societal vulnerability, through multi-sectoral and multi-level approaches.

Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment

General Information

Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment is the members' journal of the Ecological Society of America. International in scope and interdisciplinary in approach, Frontiers focuses on current ecological issues and environmental challenges.

Frontiers is aimed at professional ecologists and scientists working in related disciplines. With content that is timely, interesting, and accessible, even to those reading outside their area of expertise, it has a broad, interdisciplinary appeal and is relevant to all users of ecological science, including policy makers, resource managers, and educators.

Frontiers covers all aspects of ecology, the environment, and related subjects. You'll read about global issues, broadly impacting research, cross-disciplinary or multi-country endeavors, new techniques and technologies, new approaches to old problems, and practical applications of ecological science.

The journal is sent to all ESA members as part of their membership, and is also available by subscription to non-members and institutions.

Environment-and-BehaviorEnvironment and Behavior 

Environment and Behavior (EAB) examines relationships between human behavior and the natural and built environment. Diverse research topics include environmental experiences (e.g., restorativeness, place attachment/identity, environmental perception/cognition); environmental outcomes (e.g., pro-environmental behaviors such as recycling; health-supportive environments; design preferences); and processes linking environments and behaviors that support or thwart human well-being. 

Impact Factor: 1.365
Ranked: 24/66 in Environmental Studies and 45/111 in Psychology, Multidisciplinary
