Measuring ecosystem services: Guidance on developing ecosystem service indicators

This publication presents a series of guidelines that have been produced to support the development of ecosystem service indicators at the national and regional level for uses in reporting, policymaking, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem management, environmental management, development planning and education. The guidance is designed to assist in the development of ecosystem service indicators on both a ‘one-off’ basis to meet the needs for a particular study or report (e.g. ecosystem assessments), or for long-term reporting and decision making (e.g. to Conventions such as the CBD).
