This webinar originally aired on 15 August 2017.
This new toolkit contains key tools and resources for planning and undertaking an ecosystem services assessment and the analyses that contribute to such an assessment. It provides practical step-by-step advice on determining if an “ecosystem services” approach is needed in a given situation; completing a robust ecosystem service assessment; understanding what the results of such an assessment mean and what they do not mean; and incorporating ecosystem services analyses and considerations in a wide range of policy, decision, and management processes. The Ecosystem Services Toolkit is freely available for download at http://biodivcanada.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=B443A05E-1.
This webinar was presented by Susan Preston of Environment and Climate Change Canada, and it was co-sponsored by the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and OpenChannels.org) and MEAM.
