This seminar is particularly targeting our HDRs and ECRs who are interested in learning about Ecosystem Services (ES), extending their knowledge and skills from ecosystem functioning and conservation science. 

Kamal will discuss what ecosystem services and the related concepts are. She will discuss the importance of assessing the value of ecosystem services from Indigenous perspectives that helps informing the policy decision makers and land managers. Ecosystem services approach integrates natural resources with modern economy and policy. Kamal will offer case studies from northern Australia, along with sharing challenges and opportunities for working in this fast evolving trans-disciplinary field.
