Do you keep hearing about Ecosystem Services but haven’t managed to really grab the concept and apply it in real situations? This course will enable you to understand what is behind the concept. Specifically, you will learn how to measure and certify the impacts - in the context of the FSC system - on water, soil, carbon, tourism, or biodiversity assets. Working from the perspectives of both an auditor and an implementer, the course will explore the connections between Ecosystem Services and markets; and also demonstrate how impacts on these services can be linked to major initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals. The course has been developed in cooperation with FSC and will be co-lead by the FSC Ecosystem Services consultant.
Use this opportunity to network with other experts, with different backgrounds and expertise to you, in this trendsetting area!
This course will be conducted in English. Please ensure that your language skills will allow you to fully engage in presentations, group exercises, discussions and examinations.
