Welcome to the Ecosystem Services Community of Practice (ESCP) SciVee channel. The ESCP is a web-based community that seeks to connect government, non-governmental organization, academia, tribal, and private sector leaders to advance the use of ecosystem services and related science in conservation, restoration, resource management, and development decisions.
The ESCP was developed in response to the growing demand for ecosystem service information, professional collaboration, and synthesis for ecosystem service policies and practices. The web community is managed by the University of Florida Leadership & Education Foundation, Inc. and is moderated by professionals in the field.
The Ecosystem Services Community of Practice provides an open forum to discuss and collaborate on the latest and most innovative methods, tools, and processes for assessing ecosystem services and their effective use in planning and decision making. Individuals and stakeholders interested in resource management, restoration, conservation, and urban and non-urban development are encouraged to join and participate in this interactive community.
