In this interactive 'Office Hour' chat, Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions Ocean and Coastal Policy Program Director Linwood Pendleton will take your questions on marine and coastal ecosystem services. Is your project struggling to calculate the value of ecosystem services? Are you looking for successful cases of ecosystem service valuations in decision-making? This is your opportunity for guidance. Pendleton will also discuss outcomes from the August 2013 meeting in Bali of the Ecosystem Services Partnership.
This Office Hour takes place on OpenChannels.org, the knowledge-sharing forum for ocean planners and managers worldwide. The event will be a live interactive chat conducted by typing and reading text - there is no audio component. Office Hour chats provide an opportunity for audience members to ask questions to our guests; audience members may also share their own experiences and insights with the guests and other participants. There is multi-directional flow of information. All participants are able (and encouraged) to post, and all participants are able to view all posts.
