Goals and Objectives and Areas of the Track
This ISDRS track fosters and pursues the study of ecosystem services as a tool to integrate environmental, social, and economic aspects of sustainable development. The evaluation of ecosystem services is an excellent approach to plan and manage territories and their resources. Developing new methodologies for evaluating ecosystem services and the application of this concept to the analysis and evaluation of the sustainability of ecosystems, territories, regions are goals of this track. Also innovative approaches and case studies of ecosystem services applied at different spatial scales are welcome. Additionally, the track welcomes contributions that address enhancing and using ecosystem services for fostering the application of nature’s sink capacities to reduce waste.
