Enhancing ecoSysteM sERvices mApping for poLicy and Decision mAking - ESMERALDA 

Venue: Department of Sociology and Social Research
via Verdi, 26 - Trento

The ESMERALDA project aims at supporting European countries in fulfilling their duties in the frame of the EU Biodiversity Strategy Target 2 Action 5 “Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services”.

Funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, ESMERALDA is delivering a “flexible methodology” and tiered approach for mapping, valuation, accounting and assessment of ecosystem services (ES), as well as for the integration of different value dimensions. 

The ESMERALDA workshop in Trento aims at testing the final version of the flexible methodology in policy and decision-making in real-world case studies focusing on ES for urban planning.
It continues the work of testing of the ESMERALDA flexible methodology held in Prague (September 2016), Amsterdam (January 2017), and Madrid (May 2017), as well as builds on the stakeholders’ and Advisory Board’s feedback collected in Plovdiv Workshop (October 2017). 
An additional objective of the workshops is to contribute to build stakeholders capacity in understanding the variety of existing methods for ES mapping and assessment, and the results that can be expected from their application.

The Workshop is organized by the PLANES, a research group at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering, of the University of Trento in collaboration with the Flemish Institute for Technological Research VITO

Chairs: Davide Geneletti and Blal Adem Esmail
