With the aim of supporting EU countries in the Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services (MAES) process, ESMERALDA held a dedicated workshop to look at and discuss existing methods and how they could be used as part of an integrated assessment. The workshop, which took place from 14 to 16 April 2016 in Nottingham, UK, brought together 51 representatives from countries across Europe, including all ESMERALDA partners, together with potential new consortium members.

We are happy to welcome you to the new Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) website! Responding to feedback collected from the ESP community over the past years, we have worked hard to create an improved web environment which:
- is easy to search and navigate;
- offers a dynamic and user friendly community portal, where members can connect, exchange documents and work together;
- allows Working Groups and National Networks to showcase their work on the website.
You will be able to find all the key information which has always been available on the ESP page, along with the new ESP member Portal. The portal offers the opportunities to set up a personal profile, connect to fellow ESP-ers, join in discussions, share files, links or videos, work on joint documents, and more. Everyone can try out all the new features by using the free trial account option until 1 November.
We are still smoothing out some things – some links may still not work and many of the pages are under construction – so please bear with us for the next few days! If you notice a broken link or anything else that does not work, we will be happy to hear your feedback. See how you can contact us.
