The Oceania Ecosystem Services Forum (OESF) brings researchers, practitioners, decision-makers and knowledge holders from different communities who are dependent on, and managing for, ecosystem services into ‘one’ – A Community on Ecosystem Services (ACES).
Just as ecosystems are diverse (e.g. natural, built and agricultural; terrestrial, aquatic, coastal and marine), so are the communities who depend on and manage them (e.g. government, business and industry, local communities, indigenous peoples, academia, non-government, consulting).
The OESF aims to bring the best ecosystem services research, practice and knowledge from around the world to the Oceania region; and showcase the best ecosystem services research, practice and knowledge occurring in Oceania to the rest of the world.
This OESF provides a platform for communities to interact across different communities and knowledge systems (e.g. academic, indigenous, traditional). Join our Community to discuss, workshop, present and brainstorm innovative approaches and state-of-the-art methods to using ecosystem services concepts to address sustainability.
From across Oceania we ‘welcome’ you all to the Oceania Ecosystem Services Forum!
