Ecosystem Service Partnership_National Network Lead

 

The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ES-Partnership) was launched in 2008 and aims to enhance communication, coordination and cooperation, and to build a strong network of individuals and organizations involved the Ecosystem Service paradigm.

PLANES represents the coordinator for the Italian Chapter of the ESP National Network.

 

Our objective is to promote collaborations across institutions active in this field, and design nation-wide initiatives that might be relevant for the Italian context. Our activities will be demand-driven, and reflect the interests and motivation of the members.

Survey of the ecosystem services research in Italy
 

The purpose is to generate a database of Italian research groups active in the field of ecosystem services, highlighting their specific focus and areas of interest. The database contains general information about the research groups and their ES studies, classified according to scale and type of analysis. A short description of the most representative studies of each group completes the database. The survey represents a first step towards building a strong and motivated ESP National Network, which can actively promote ES-related initiatives in Italy. The content of the database will be periodically updated. 

Results 

 

ES & SCALE OF ANALYSIS

 

The graph illustrates the number of institutions analyzing a specifi c ES at a specifi c spatial scale (the TEEB classifi cation for ES was adopted). The dark-grey circles represent the spatial scales. Every ES is represented by a sector. The dots represent the number of institution working on that specifi c ES at that specific scale.

 

 

ES & TYPE OF ANALYSIS

 

The graph illustrates the number of institutions applying a specifi c type of analysis to a specifi c ES (the TEEB classifi cation for ES was adopted)
