ACES: A Community on Ecosystem Services represents a dynamic and growing assembly of professionals, researchers, and policy makers involved with ecosystem services. The ACES 2014 Conference will bring together this community in partnership with Ecosystem Markets and the Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP), to provide an open forum to share experiences and state-of-the-art methods, tools, and processes for assessing and incorporating ecosystem services into public and private decisions. The focus of the conference is to link science, practice, and sustainable decision making by bringing together the ecosystem services community from around the United States and the globe. ACES 2014 will bring together leaders in government, NGOs, academia, Native American communities , and the private sector to advance the use of ecosystem services science and practice in conservation, restoration, resource management, and development decisions. To facilitate discussion, a variety of presentation methods including, organized sessions, oral and poster presentations, and hands-on workshops will be incorporated into the conference structure. Topics and themes from previous ecosystem service community events will be integrated to provide a comprehensive conference on ecosystem services.
We hope you will make plans to join the more than 500 anticipated participants so that you may take part in this collaborative discussion and to advance use of an ecosystem services framework for natural resource management and policy.
