Mainstreaming ecosystem services in agricultural production

Heterogent landskap

See a film with lectures from this workshop.

The aim of the workshop is better understand how our research on ecosystem services in agriculture can be used and how we also in research can make use of other researchers results.  The workshop includes presentations of different ways of how to find scope, address key challenges and use scientific results when aiming at a more sustainable agricultural production. In research we generally are very good at mapping ecosystem services, evaluating different types of management towards environmental issues and also to predict and test outcomes of future scenarios on agriculture. However, the scientific knowledge is often very diverse in outcomes and difficult to integrate into policy formulation or to understand for local farmers. Here we will address recent scientific work in the area of ecosystem services and agriculture and by that address decision making in for eg, CAP.

The workshop is a collaboration between Lund university, The Centre of Environmental and climate research, the BECC strategic research project and Mistra Eviem.
