Ecosystems, Conservation,

This year’s Annual Science Conference will focus on synthesising learning across projects to answer the ‘big questions’ ESPA was established to address:

  • How do ecosystem services influence human well-being in different ecosystems / locations and for different socio-economic groups?
  • How will this change over time and what is driving this change?
  • What options exist to mediate linkages so that human well-being is enhanced and ecosystems are conserved?
  • What are the barriers / uncertainties inhibiting simultaneous achievement of the conservation and development outcomes and how can we overcome them? This includes those relating to governance and decision-making.


Attendance at the conference is free, however you will need to cover the cost of your own travel and accommodation unless you are a speaker at the conference. Speakers at the conference will have their economy travel and reasonable accommodation costs cover by ESPA.
