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.

The emphasis of this 7th International ESP conference will be on the use of the ecosystem services concept at the local level, focusing on Latin America with a special emphasis on Costa Rica. Scientists representing several EU-funded projects will present their results on Community Based Ecosystem Management: CiVi.Net, COBRA,EcoADAPT, CombioServe and COMETLA.
In line with the previous ESP conferences, the program consists of a mix of plenary sessions (keynotes, panels), workshops, open topic sessions, special sessions and field trips.
