In Slovenia, the project Identification, assessment and mapping of ecosystem services in valuable nature conservation areas in Slovenia – NatGuidES has started in October. The main aim of the project is to establish a protocol for identifying, mapping and assessing ecosystem services in valuable nature conservation areas.
ESP connects over 3000 ecosystem services scientists, policy makers and practitioners who work together in more than 40 Working Groups and a growing number of National Networks on all continents. ESP regularly organises World and Regional conferences and provides many Services to further enhance the application of ecosystem services for nature conservation, ecosystem restoration and sustainable management. Partner up with ESP and join in the global effort for the future of our Natural Capital!
As a knowledge base dedicated to showcasing the richness and value of nature-based solutions in cities worldwide, the Urban Nature Atlas (UNA) aims to inform, inspire, and enable everyone interested in bringing their transformative power to bear on the cities of the future. Presenting nature-based solutions in cities, the Urban Nature Atlas now profiles in detail over 1000 projects from European cities and beyond. [Read more…] about Urban Nature Atlas
SLU Swedish Species Information Centre are recruiting a postdoc who will optimize future forestry and conservation for sustainable and multifunctional use of the forest biomass. You will optimize forestry, conservation and wood use to reach objectives on future revenue, biodiversity, ecosystem services and climate. Available are tools/models to simulate future forestry, species distribution and richness, ecosystem services, and climate, the latter based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

The network of Justice and Environment has been operating for around 20 years with the mission to improve EU environmental laws and their implementation for the benefit of the environment and people across Europe. While their two decades of work resulted in many policy outputs and successes, systematic organizational screening of their impact has not yet been carried out (similarly to most organizations – mostly due to the complexity of the task). In order to have a better understanding of how the members consider the impacts of the organization and what future directions they regard important, Ecosystem Valuation set up an initial impact framework and compiled a relevant questionnaire.
