Statement of Interest in the Call

I have a long standing interesting in developing countries, mainly in the issue of wtaer resources. Recently, my work has been focussed in the UK, developing concepts applicable to water and, very recently soil C and GHG emissions, in the context of Ecosystem Services. I feel it is appropriate to use this expertise available to help developing countries begin to employ the concept of ecosystem services to assist their sustainable development.
