During the Business track attendees and external parties are offered the opportunity to exhibit their project, business, product or organisation at the Ecosystem Services market place. The market place will be a great way to show your work to the wider ESP10 delegates, over 600 delegates from science, policy and practice working in the field of Ecosystem Services and Natural Capital are expected to join.
The market place stands will be present during the entire day on Thursday 24 October. From 15:00-16:30 a longer break is scheduled to provide delegates the opportunity to engage with the market place exhibitors.
In order to exhibit your organisation with a stand during the market place, registration is required. Market place registration can be done through the registration form. The fee for the market place stand is €70 for students, low-income country delegates and ESP members, and €85 for other delegates. This fee is charged on top of the applicable (day-)registration fee. Submit your registration here. As an exhibitor you will be provided with a pin board, a table, two chairs and an electricity plug.
Below on overview is to be found of the market place stands that will be present at the market place on Thursday. Stand holders will be provided with a table and a poster board. The below market place exhibitors overview will be updated regularly.
1. Creating Butterfly Habitats under Corporate Social Responsibility
We have developed butterfly habitats through plantation under CSR.
2. Ecosystems and People - an open access journal
3. Research project FIDELIO: Forecasting Social impacts of biodiversity conservation policies in Europe
FIDELIO is a project funded by the European Research Council which aims to explore social impacts of protected areas across Europe. The project will collect data from approximately 20 European Protected Areas. If you have suggestions for specific sites where you think it would be interesting to explore social impacts of a designated protected do come and meet us at the marketplace on Thursday 24th October, 3-4.30. Dr Nikoleta Jones (PI of the project) and Dr James McGinlay (Post-doctoral research fellow) will be there to discuss with scientists and practitioners opportunities for collaboration within and beyond the project. More information on the project is available here: www.anglia.ac.uk/fidelio.

5. Using natural capital to inform sustainability development for small islands; applications across the Caribbean and South Atlantic UK Overseas Territories (JNCC)
The UK Overseas Territories span the globe from the South Atlantic to the Caribbean. They are all highly dependent on the natural environment for their economic and social well-being and, whilst some islands have relatively larger populations (up to 60,000) and thriving economies, a few still rely on UK Government aid for their survival. The UK Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) embarked on the ‘Natural Capital in the Caribbean and South Atlantic Overseas Territories’ programme, funded by the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), in late 2016. Completed in March 2019, its aim was to provide an assessment of natural capital in a number of the UK’s Caribbean and South Atlantic Overseas Territories, to build capacity to monitor environmental change, and integrate environmental evidence into economic policy making and infrastructure planning. Islands across the two regions differ in governance, ecology, climate, population, wealth, education and connectivity which necessitated different approaches on each island. Innovative use of data and adaptive methodologies were often necessary, but a common guiding principle was the use of a bottom-up approach to ensure full engagement from relevant Governments. Outputs range from environmental vulnerability modelling to Bayesian networks, cultural ecosystem services assessments to fisheries monitoring plans. The programme crosses ESP regional chapters and working groups but provides a unique set of case studies from which to learn.

8. Toolkit for Ecosystem Services Site-Based Assessment (TESSA)
The stand will promote the guidance TESSA and the work of Birdlife on ecosystem services and natural capital. BirdLife developed the Toolkit of Ecosystem Services Site-based Assessment (TESSA) in 2014 (first version; 2017: latest version 2.0.) in collaboration with academics, conservation practitioners and other experts from six organisations. TESSA is a practical guidance framework with the steps to assess ecosystem services of a site of interest. This guidance includes identification of important ecosystem services at the site, methodologies to use and data to collect to measure these services, and how to present and communicate the results to diverse audience. It is relevant for sites that are typically between 100 to 10,000ha. The ultimate goal using TESSA is to assess changes in ecosystem services and beneficiaries related to management or land use planning. This assessment thus relies on a comparative valuation of ecosystem services between the current state of the site under study (at the present time, e.g., current protected area) and an alternative state - a hypothetical scenario but with the most realistic future conditions of the site (e.g., unprotected status of the site with conversion to agriculture). This counter-factual approach of assessment provides decision-makers with the net consequences of such changes to the ecosystem, and the loss and gain of the benefits for human well-being. Outcomes of such assessment using TESSA can consequently influence policies in management and land use planning.
