National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP)

NESP is an information and knowledge exchange hub for policy work and research on ecosystem services and nature-based solutions.

The National Ecosystem Services Partnership (NESP) engages both public and private individuals and organizations to enhance collaboration within the ecosystem services community, including on nature-based solutions. NESP aims to strengthen coordination of policy, market implementation, and research at the national level. The partnership is an initiative of Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability and was developed with support from the US Environmental Protection Agency and donations of expertise and time from many public and private institutions.

NESP releases a quarterly newsletter that shares up-to-date ecosystem services and nature-based solutions research, implementation examples, events and jobs. Sign up to receive the newsletter here.
