The Future of Ecosystem Services: Does climate change really matter

The Future of Ecosystem Services: Does climate change really matter?

Human Health and Ecosystem Services

A warmer climate, with extreme weather events and shifting rainfall patterns, is affecting ecosystems, from the species to the community levels, thus potentially altering the ability of these ecosystems to provide critical services.

This session covered:
The complex links that exist between climate change and ecological services
How to identify appropriate investments in ecosystem services to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Participants gained a deeper understanding how to identify and assess ecosystems services and how to translate these to actions that a community can take to build resilience.

Moderator: Germán Mora, Director of the Environmental Studies Program, Goucher College

Speakers/Panelists:
Pouyat, Richard, Senior Policy Analyst, Climate Resilience and Land Use, Office of Science and Technology Policy
Alexander J. Felson, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Yale School of Architecture
Clyde F Casey, USGS
