OPERAs webinar 2 question by Hyeonju Ryu

What sort of information on ecosystem services are needed for policy making?


Marianne Kettunen: In my view, the key information includes both biophysical and socio-economic information, such as the following a)current biophysical status and importance to wellbeing, b) foreseen trends in biophysical status and importance to wellbeing, both under status que and if the suggested policy changes take place, c) current status and changes in terms of trade-offs and synergies between different ecosystem services (This is important!) and d) considerations of different stakeholders that are linked to the ecosystem services flows (the one who manage / maintain them and the ones who benefits from them)
