MAPPING THE BENEFITS OF NATURE: THE USE OF SPATIAL DATA IN AFRICAN CITIES
August 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The world’s economic prosperity and well-being are underpinned by its natural capital, which includes ecosystems that provide essential goods and services for mankind. Mapping ecosystem services is essential to understand how ecosystems contribute to human wellbeing and to support policies which have an impact on natural resources. It is also useful in bridging the gap between environmental protection, meeting the needs of people, and identifying opportunities for action and investment.
This webinar aims to demonstrate how mapping can help decision makers at sub-national and local levels to identify priority areas to engage targets for the conservation and restoration of nature, as well as pathways to achieve these targets and where to direct investment for green open spaces.
