Ecosystem Initiatives

Technical Working Group on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (T-AGG)

This project aims to generate momentum for the inclusion of agriculture as a climate change mitigation option in the U.S. and abroad. Our process involves expert assessment to ensure high-quality mitigation. It will include engagement of stakeholders and decision makers throughout.

National Ecosystem Services Partnership

The National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP) engages both public and private individuals and organizations to enhance collaboration within the ecosystem services community and to strengthen coordination of policy and market implementation and research at the national level. The partnership is an initiative of Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and was developed with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and with donations of expertise and time from many public and private institutions.

Ecosystem Services Working Group

The Duke Ecosystem Services Working Group integrates the collective expertise of faculty, staff, and students across Duke to discuss and address issues concerning ecosystem services. Members of the working group include experts on ecology, economics, law, and policy, which enables us to explore the full spectrum of ecosystem services issues, such as mapping supply and demand for ecosystem services, valuation of services, and understanding and building policies and markets to incorporate ecosystem services into our decisions and our economy.
