The Ecological Forecasting Initiative (EFI) is a broad, interdisciplinary effort aimed at promoting the use of forecasts to understand, manage, and conserve ecosystems and the services they provide. In May, the inaugural EFI 2019 conference was aimed at bringing together scientists, agencies, industry, and stakeholders to build a community of practice and advance research, applications, and collaboration around near-term (subdaily to decadal) ecological forecasts. In this presentation, Lynch will discuss the motivation behind the development of the Ecological Forecasting Initiative, the challenges remaining for wide-spread development of iterative short term forecasts in ecological applications, and some of the major themes raised at EFI 2019.
