The Task Forces are vehicles for active ESP members to engage in developing and maintaining certain products and services the Partnership offers; like guidelines, databases, and education & training packages. These services are in line with ESP’s mission to enhance the concept of ecosystem services by encouraging stronger collaboration and diversity of approaches within the ES network, while reducing unnecessary duplication of efforts.
