The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) is a major international initiative to draw attention to the global economic benefits of
biodiversity, to highlight the growing costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation, and to draw together action-oriented expertise from the fields of science, economics and policy.Two years after the influential TEEB reports, TEEB invites the research and policy community to Leipzig, Germany, to discuss the state of the art in Environmental Valuation, Ecosystem Services and Science-Policy Processes.
The TEEB Conference 2012 will be hosted by the Scientific Coordinators of the TEEB reports, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research UFZ, in Leipzig, Germany. In Leipzig, conference participants will have the possibility to discuss and update the findings of the TEEB study and contribute to a new understanding of the link between economics, decision-making and the environment.
ABSTRACTS (400 words) for INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATIONS and/or COORDINATED SESSIONS can be submitted until SEPTEMBER 23, 2011. Instructions for Authors as well as the online submission tool will appear in short on the conference website:
The Call for Papers is available on the conference website.
