ESA is a supporting partner of a really innovative and useful new project by the World Resources Institute: an online directory of scientists whose work relates to ecosystems services. This experts database is meant to be a resource for journalists, policymakers and businesspeople. The free directory enables users to search for experts around the world in a wide range of disciplines, including ecology, geology, environmental science, law, business and architecture. Each expert’s profile includes their area of expertise, a short bio, a CV and contact information. You can view the database here.
To be considered for inclusion in this database, send your name, organization, title, and resume or CV to the organizers at the World Resources Institute, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the IUCN or Earthwatch. The criteria to apply are that you are affiliated with a university, NGO, corporation or government body, hold an advanced degree in a field related to ecosystem services and have 5 years in a research or practitioner role related to ecosystem services.
