Speakers will reflect on the role of place-based observatories in organising data, models and cases with the objective of building a robust evidence base for decision making in environmental management. They will share their experience and lessons learned from applying the nexus concept of trade-offs to develop, validate and pilot a monitoring methodology for Sustainable Development Goal Target 6.3 of the United Nations
