Concurrent Session 5 Singapore DPSIR

Allie Lawler, Colorado State University
Avery Ackelbein, Colorado State University
Kristin Karashinski, Colorado State University
Leah Mendoza, Colorado State University

4:00 PM

The Singapore freshwater crab is an ecological indicator for Singapore that is vulnerable to climate change effects such as saltwater intrusion. In response, Singapore has committed to a set of NDCs that can be linked to SDGs the country also has to further prevent climate related disruptions to species like the Singapore freshwater crab. This project will explore the connections made between the Singapore freshwater crab and other aspects of sustainability in Singapore through a DPSIR framework to go into more depth on these connections and the future of sustainability and meeting climate action goals in Singapore.

Concurrent Session 5 Austrian DPSIR and NDCs

Monserrat Rodriguez, Colorado State University
Cody Bingham, Colorado State University
Mae Tice, Colorado State University
Kaitlyn Weber, Colorado State University

4:10 PM

The DPSIR model relates an Austrian species, the golden eagle, to Austria’s Nationally Determined Contributions as outlined by the European Union’s Sustainable Development Goals. This poster discusses the cultural significance of this ecological indicator species and relates that to the sustainability efforts happening within Austria. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that closely relate to our ecological indicator include 16: Life on Land, 13: Climate Action, and 7: Affordable and Clean Energy. Austria’s Nationally Determined Contributions also closely relate to these chosen SDGs that are listed above.

Concurrent Session 5 Comoros Mongoose Lemur

Owen Eastberg, Colorado State University
Andrew Jussila, Colorado State University
Noah Nosek, Colorado State University
Weinan Zhao, Colorado State University

4:20 PM

We will be speaking on the Mongoose Lemur of Comoros, which is a critically endangered species. The species is a great contributor to the ecosystems it inhabits, so it is an important species to preserve. The species is being threatened by numerous things, and it is receiving very little to no protection from local agencies.

Concurrent Session 5 African Wild Dogs as an Ecological Indicator Species In Burkina Faso

Gunnar Wagner, Colorado State University
Katrina Gilman, Colorado State University
Adam Barrett, Colorado State University
Bryce Weinell, Colorado State University

4:30 PM

Burkina Faso is a small, landlocked country in arid West Africa, which is home to an isolated population of the endangered African Wild Dog. Throughout this report, we will explore the current ecological condition of Burkina Faso and work being done in the country to help mitigate ecosystem impacts and establish ecosystem resilience. These concepts will be explored within the context of African Wild Dogs, which we have selected as an ecological indicator species to represent the narrative of climate and adaptation in Burkina Faso.

Concurrent Session 5 The Lappet-faced Vulture as an Ecological Indicator of Mali

Amanda McLean, Colorado State University
Brendan Gildea, Colorado State University
Kaleigh Kennedy, Colorado State University
Emilijia Miskinyte, Colorado State University

4:40 PM

We explore the Lappet-faced vulture as an ecological indicator of climate change effects in Mali. We use the DPSIR framework to assess how this species can give insight on the effects of climate change and other issues.
