This week Carl Obst is speaking at the SELINA workshop in Trondheim, Norway as a member of the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA) Technical Committee. He will be outlining the way the SEEA will be used for monitoring and informing the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF).

The workshop is a great opportunity for everyone to delve into the connections between these two vital international efforts, SEEA and GBF, to protect and restore nature.

SELINA stands for Science for Evidence-based and Sustainable Decisions about Natural Capital. The project is an international collaboration designed to promote:

  • ecosystem services
  • biodiversity
  • conservation
  • enhanced ecosystem conditions.

Audience members at the workshop will include experts from the EU, Norway, Switzerland, Israel and the United Kingdom, who are gathering with the intention of:

  • Advancing the design of ecosystem assessment to address the ecosystem knowledge needs of stakeholders
  • Promoting ‘peer-to-peer’ learning in ecosystem assessment across the SELINA consortium
  • Gaining a deeper understanding of ecosystem assessment features that increase the likelihood of uptake by stakeholders to support policy design.
