There is no easy recipe for integrating equity in ecosystem services work, but hearing about different ways that people have addressed the interplay between equity and ecosystem services can help us all to think more critically about inequities in our work related to who benefits from ecosystem services, how decisions are made about managing ecosystem services, and what services are prioritized.
