ESBN Facilitated Workshop (Agriculture Sector)
Wed, 26 April 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM MDT
Over the past several years many organizations, various levels of government, academia and industry have been exploring ways to integrate ES into planning and decision-making on working landscapes in Alberta. An important element of this approach is to identify current and future information needs. To meet these needs, solutions need to be developed that are practical, science-based, easy to understandand communicate.
In response, the Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity Network (ESBN) has identified an opportunity to develop a series of sector-based workshops across Alberta, and is now working with Land Stewardship Centre to deliver them. The intent of the workshop is to support the development of a recognized, comprehensive ES approach that can be adopted by governments, resource-based industries, landowners and land managers, and conservation organizations.
Discussion will be focused around the five building blocks required for the successful use of an ecosystem services approach, as identified through the Ecosystem Services Roadmap:
- Market Infrastructure
- Data and Information Management
- Enabling Policy
- Stakeholder Engagement and Outreach
