The Ecosystem Services in Sustainable Development Short Course will be on 11-16 September 2017 held by University of East Anglia. This course is designed for practitioners working in government institutions, NGOs, international agencies and private sector with an interest in identifying, appraising and managing the synergies and trade-offs among multiple users and uses of nature.
The course begins by examining how natural resources and biodiversity are increasingly being referred to as natural capital. It looks at the evolution of natural capital and ecosystem service (ESS) thinking, categories of ESS, case study examples, the advantages of an ESS approach, and critiques of using a utilitarian approach to nature.
This course has been developed by Dr Sarah Park, Dr Nicole Gross-Camp and Dr Simon Attwood, who utilise an ecosystem service lens to help balance resource use and conservation needs. They have vast experience in applying the concept in a participatory manner in collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders in both developed and developing country contexts.
