The effort needs to be implemented globally which needs much faster knowledge dissemination, generation and training.
The objective of the workshop is to dwell on the theory, practice and actions related to accounting for ecosystem services so that research questions that need to be resolved become clearer for future researchers and methodology to address these research questions gets within the reach of researchers to produce better quality research output.
The workshop, which is part of these ongoing activities, on "Accounting for Ecosystem Services: Theory and Practice" will have the following speakers involved:
Research collaborations between IIASA and India stretch back to the 1970s, but the relationship has recently become far more productive after India became a national member of IIASA in 2007 through the Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC).
