Partnerships that Work: Enhancing Ecosystem Services

Partnerships that Work: Enhancing Ecosystem Services

Human Health and Ecosystem Services Track

This session provided information on how to recognize and integrate ecosystem services that enhance community resilience, existing partnership examples, strategies to initiate collaborative actions, and how to deal with some of the challenges that may exist from projected increase of frequency and scale of impacts from a changing climate.

This session covered:
Identifying gaps in knowledge and expertise required to more fully inform local decision makers about the efficacy of on-the-ground actions.

How best to leverage existing partnerships and create links between existing efforts in the context of limited resources to enhance community preparedness.

Participants gained knowledge of actions developed by organizations and institutions that have identified effective ways to address the link between ecosystem services and human health and safety at the municipal and regional scale.
