Ecosystem Services Training for Coral Reef Managers and Practitioners in Hawaii

Blue Solutions and GRID-Arendal partnered with The Nature Conservancy and the Reef Resilience Network to run a five-day training on Integrating Ecosystem Services into Coral Reef Policy and Management on March 5-10, 2017. Experts, managers and practitioners from different countries and agencies gathered in Kona, Hawaii to learn how to evaluate ecosystem services and communicate the benefits they provide to people, in order to guide sound decision making and effective management. The workshop included a field trip to the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and Kiholo Bay, where participants applied their new skills to assess and value the ecosystem services these places provide.
