ACES: A Community on Ecosystem Services represents a dynamic and growing assembly of professionals, researchers, and policy makers involved with ecosystem services. The ACES 2014 Conference brings together this community in partnership with Ecosystem Markets and the Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP), providing an open forum to share experiences, methods, and tools, for assessing and incorporating ecosystem services into public and private decisions.
The focus of the conference is to link science, practice, and sustainable decision making by bringing together the ecosystem services community from around the United States and the globe. ACES 2014 will bring together leaders in government, NGOs, academia, Native American communities, and the private sector to advance the use of ecosystem services science and practice in conservation, restoration, resource management, and development decisions.
We hope you will make plans to join more than 500 ecosystem service stakeholders in this collaborative discussion to advance use of an ecosystem services framework for natural resource management and policy.
New Guidebook to be Released at ACES!
A new online guidebook on ecosystem services and natural resource management will be unveiled at the ACES Conference this December by the National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP). The guidebook describes how an ecosystem services approach to planning and management can be useful for federal resource managers and provides an ecosystem services assessment framework designed to promote consistent and credible application.
