Kenya; 21 – 25 April 2013
The workshop will develop an understanding of ecosystem services and methods for their assessment. It will train participants to use a toolkit designed for assessing ecosystem services at the site scale and delivering scientifically robust results. After the workshop, participants will be encouraged to apply the toolkit at field sites they are working in. Applications will be accepted from African conservation professionals and post-graduate level researchers. There will be a number of funded places available for both the workshop and site assessments, as well as places for self-funded participants.
