The Natural Floodplain Functions Alliance (NFFA) is busy working on confirmation of webinar topics and presenters for 2017.
NFFA will host bimonthly events that combine a conference call format with a webinar presentation (typically the 1st Tuesday of the month at 3pm ET).
Coastal and freshwater systems – especially floodplains and wetlands - provide tangible economic value to communities, yet managers often do not incorporate the value of nature into decision making. This presentation has three components: 1) An overview of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and partners’ guidebook, A guide for incorporating ecosystem service valuation into coastal restoration projects, 2) Practical examples of ecosystem service valuation from the field, 3) An introduction to the ESII tool to assess the value of nature in decision making, developed through a collaboration between TNC and Dow Chemical Company.
