Newly identified: 77 Ecologically or Biologically Significant Areas in the Arctic marine environment

June 2009 to June 2011

New maps identifying 77 Areas of Ecologically or Biologically Significance (EBSAs) in the Arctic marine environment are now available through a recent project led by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Ecologic Institute. The report identifies 13 "Super EBSAs" which are of key importance because they meet many or all criteria developed under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).The report is available for download.Read more

Market-Based Instruments for Ecosystem Services

Guidelines for Scaling-up Ecosystem Service Values

August 2008 to July 2009

Large-scale environmental valuations are usually accompanied with great methodological difficulties.
