This webinar will introduce TESSA (the Toolkit for Ecosystem Service Site-based Assessment). TESSA provides accessible guidance on low-cost methods for how to evaluate the benefits people receive from nature (ecosystem services) at particular sites (e.g.KBAs, community forests, Ramsar sites) in order to generate information that can be used to influence decision making. The approach and methods are designed to be applicable globally, and across all terrestrial and wetland habitats (currently excluding marine areas). TESSA is available for download here.
This webinar will be presented by Jenny Merriman and Isadora Angarita-Martinez of BirdLife International. The webinar will introduce the toolkit and will present case studies of where and how it has been used in different contexts, including most recently in the Acaponeta watershed in Mexico. There will be time at the end for a general Q&A session.
