Capacity building workshop – national ecosystem assessments using the IPBES process and approaches
The main objective of this workshop is to develop capacity to undertake national ecosystem assessments using the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) process and approaches in the East Africa region.
Specifically, the objectives of the workshop are for participants to:
1. Have an understanding of the basic concepts of an ecosystem assessment and be able to illustrate both the value and rationale for undertaking one;
2. Gain new ideas and inspiration about how a national ecosystem assessment can be used to instigate policy and behavioural change;
3. Be provided with information on how national ecosystem assessments can contribute to assessments under IPBES;
4. Be introduced to a variety of tools and data for ecosystem assessments; and
5. Contribute to a preliminary capacity needs assessment that will feed into a proposal for supporting countries to undertake ecosystem assessments as part of efforts to mainstream biodiversity and ecosystem services into their development strategies.
