Nature Conservation Centre (Doğa Koruma Merkezi; DKM) is a foundation established in 2004 in Turkey. DKM is a member of ESP and throughout its work, DKM uses conservation science to deliver conservation solutions which are comprehensive and innovative. One of topics on which DKM in specializes is the ecosystem services, especially mapping ecosystem services. One of the main objectives of DKM is to share and disseminate spatial information on ecosystem services to different sectors and to bring into the agenda of spatial planning. Within this scope, we have started a new project for mapping urban ecosystem services. The project entitled Nature and Cities, supported by “Civil Society Dialogue Between the EU and Turkey Programme”, will be carried out between April 2019 and July 2020. As part of the project, the urban green areas (parks, urban forests, natural areas), ecological corridors, agricultural areas and other recreational areas in Çankaya district (Ankara) will be mapped as urban ecosystem services, which is a new approach for Turkey. Within this study, it’s intended to promote urban ES mapping in Turkey, integrate the maps into the land use strategies and to inform and guide the users and decision makers. In this context, DKM experts started to work on this subject and drafted the urban ES maps for the district. A workshop was held on 27 August 2019 in Ankara in order to inform all stakeholders on nature-based solutions and green infrastructure, and verify the data on the draft maps and evaluate the natural ecosystems and ecosystem services through working groups. The results of the study will be published at the end of October, 2019. The project website is being developed; you can follow the project on social media @dogavesehirler.
