You are invited to participate in the April 23-24 2019 workshop, being hosted by USDA’s Economic Research Service, US Forest Service, and National Institute of Food and Agriculture entitled “Applications and Potential of Ecosystem Services Valuation within USDA – Advancing the Science”.  The goal of the workshop is to provide decision makers, researchers, and other stakeholders with an understanding of how innovative methods in economics, advances in theory, and access to new and existing data can be used to improve the valuation of ecosystem services associated with USDA programs and policies.

This workshop will happen in Washington, DC. Registration is free, and opens in January 2019.
