Earth Observations for Ecosystem Accounts (EO4EA): Using Geospatial Data to Identify and Monitor Ecosystem Services in an Ecosystems Accounts Framework
Join the Group on Earth Observations community, Conservation International and the World Bank/Waves Partnership to take stock of a new approach to ecosystem sustainability.
Experts from NOAA, USGS, The European Environment Agency, and government statistics bodies Statistic Canada and INEGI (Mexico), as well as other environmental technical experts will look at key issues around Ecosystems Accounts.
The Caribbean and Latin America are highly vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change, with three out of four residents living in coastal areas. However, a few countries are using innovative policies and strategic investments to increase resilience and improve livelihoods. This panel will explore new ways the region is defending the coast from the effects of climate change and urban development. In a region that is urbanizing quickly, how do we stabilize shorelines, reduce flooding, improve public access and protect the resilience of coastal and marine ecosystems?
Hosted by the Natural Capital Project (NatCap) at Stanford University, the 2016 Natural Capital Symposium will be a major convening of leaders in natural capital approaches around the world. We are coordinating with international and domestic groups focusing on natural capital approaches, to ensure that the growing community of practice around natural capital approaches continues to engage, learn, and adapt.
