7th Annual ESP Conference 2014 Calling for Abstracts

The Ecosystem Services Partnership is a member organisation that aims to facilitate discussion and cooperation amongst its members. Therefore, ESP is actively involved in the organization and support of conferences and workshops.

Every year, ESP organizes the Annual ESP Conference for its members. Its goals are to discuss the progress of ESP, progress in the fields of Ecosystem Services Science, Policy & Practise and to provide an event for its Working Groups, National Networks and partnerships. In addition, ESP works together with other key networks and organisations to stimulate the organisation and participation in workshops and conferences.
