WCS Ecosystem Services Resources

Trainings & Workshops

WCS is committed to fostering innovation and building capacity related to managing ecosystem services around the world. Towards this end, we have developed training materials and supported multiple training events and workshops that aim to share lessons learned and explore new ideas, provide technical skills to natural resource managers, and/or support decision making on critical issues surrounding the management of multiple ecosystem services.
