The importance of ecosystem services for sustainable food systems is globally recognized.
During this cycle we will talk about the definition, concepts and applications of ecosystem services with a focus on sustainable food systems. We will discuss concepts, methodologies and tools needed to understand ecosystem services. Several speakers will present the different perspectives from case studies of ecosystem services provided by aquaculture and soil valorisation and management.
