The Ecosystem Services Partnership aims to facilitate discussion and cooperation amongst those working in the field of ecosystem services, and its members especially. In order to do so, ESP has organised international conferences annually since 2008. As of 2015 ESP shifted to a bi-annual cycle for the World Conferences, with Regional conferences in the in between year.
In order to enable as many ecosystem services professionals around the globe to join and share knowledge, we shift the location of our international conferences to a different continent each year. In this way, we strengthen ties between professionals from all over the world, so best practices in the field of ecosystem services can be shared and ideally implemented elsewhere.
