This seminar is hosted by the Oxford Centre for Tropical Rainforests and the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society.

This seminar is a conversation between academics and practitioners in the emerging ecosystem services sector. Ecosystem service schemes are emerging as a new tool for the management of natural resources and systems. As with other innovations, advances with respect to the logics, science, policy and markets that drive these schemes is by no means even or linear. The exchange of ideas and information across different sectors and areas of expertise is crucial to sustain progress.
