ESP conference 2014 Information

The emphasis of this Seventh international ESP conference was on the use of the ecosystem services concept at the local level, focussing on Latin America with a special emphasis on Costa Rica. Scientists representing several EU-funded projects presented their results on Community Based Ecosystem Management: CiVi.Net, COBRA, EcoADAPT, CombioServe and COMETLA.

In line with the previous ESP conferences, the program consisted of a mix of plenary sessions (keynotes, panels), workshops, open topic sessions, special sessions and field trips.

For the outcomes of the previous six ESP conferences please see our previous conferences websites.
