ESP members Eeva Primmer, Davide Geneletti, Lasse Loft and others published the paper Mapping Europe’s institutional landscape for forest ecosystem service provision, innovations and governance. The article highlights how mapping and assessing ecosystem services (ES) have been used to support governance. It shows the importance of the institutional landscape that governs ES provision across multiple contexts. A framework is developed and operationalized for the analysis of policy documents that address European forest ES provision. An analysis of how the biophysical supply of forest ES is connected to policies paying attention to ES is given. The article also identifies innovations and the governance mechanisms for the provision of the ES.
