April 2018

Monday, April 9, 2018 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
US-IALE 2018 Annual Meeting, Chicago, Illinois

The world is increasingly telecoupled through distant flows of information, matter, energy, organisms, people, money, and technology. Such telecouplings (socioeconomic and environmental interactions over distances) can drastically influence sustainable development and conservation across local to global scales. The integrated telecoupling framework offers novel perspectives on how human-nature interactions in one place can have enormous effects on those far away, and on how distant feedbacks affect people and landscapes.

US-IALE 2018 Annual Meeting, Chicago, Illinois

Landscapes across the world are increasingly interconnected, both ecologically and socioeconomically. To understand and manage such complex interconnections, a relatively new integrated framework of telecoupling is proposed (http://www.telecoupling.org). Telecouplings are socioeconomic and ecological interactions between multiple coupled human and natural systems (e.g., landscapes) over distances. They occur during trade, water transfer, payment for ecosystem services, foreign investment, migration, and tourism.

Monday, September 3, 2018 - 8:00am - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 6:00pm
Taipei, Taiwan

The teleconnections and telecouplings offer conceptual frameworks to evaluate socio-economic and environmental interactions over distances. In order to transition to environmental sustainability, the frameworks are helpful to measure drivers and impacts of the interactions, and to model the interactions from global to local scales. The goal of this conference is to provide, from global to local, interdisciplinary sustainability solutions, which can be covered by the themes:

Global food trade is necessary to balance supply and demand across the world due to regional differences including climate, diet preference, and population growth. In the past decades, global food trade has increased exponentially in trading quantity and commodity types, resulting in drastic impacts on food production and global environment. The integrated telecoupling framework offers novel perspectives for researchers to study food production and consumption changes and the related environmental issues.

Taipei, Taiwan

The world has become increasingly telecoupled through distant flows of information, matter, energy, organisms, people, money, and technology. Through connecting people and the environment in one place to those in distant places, the flows can have enormous impacts across telecoupled human and natural systems. The telecoupling framework provides novel perspectives for researchers to investigate the mechanisms and impacts of flows on the human and natural systems that are far away.
