The proceedings of our 2012 Biodiversity and Solar Salt Conference organised in collaboration with CEISSA is now available online.
Two years ago, academics, researchers and salt producers from around the world met in Seville (Spain) to discuss the interactions between solar salt works and biodiversity. The debate highlighted the interdependence that presides over this relationship: biodiversity preservation/creation in coastal areas depends on wetlands and salt works. In a like manner, salt quality is enhanced by the biodiversity that is found within salt ponds. This positive correlation calls up for joined-up, well-coordinated governance and for the need to recognise the economic value of nature.
