EKLIPSE is inviting experts to join an expert working group to develop recommendations for Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) measures to improve biodiversity and related ecosystem services, with a focus on Ecological Focus Areas–this is a direct policy request from IUCN and the Swedish Board of Agriculture.
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!
The ECOSTAR Hub has published three original new reports benchmarking for the first time the size, scope, and scale of ecosystem market mechanisms in Europe for voluntary carbon, watershed investments, and biodiversity offsets and compensation.
