Integrating Ecosystem Services (IES) into Development Planning.

What is it? Stepwise approach for systematically assessing, valuating and integrating ecosystem services (ES) into the design and review of development plans, sector-specific and spatial planning, environmental and climate assessments, project development and proposal formulation.

What is the purpose? Assist in recognizing the links between nature and development, considering the environmental and economic trade-offs associated with development measures and incorporating ES-related opportunities and risks into the implementation of strategies.

Who can use it? Advisors, project staff and development planners in partner countries.

A guide and information are provided for the IES-Approach. Planning.

Information material on ecosystem services approach, TEEB, economic valuation, etc.
