We are in the second day of the ESPA workshop and starting to discuss what makes ESPA special and how projects will contribute to this.

Today the workshop is discussing the draft frameworks for ESPA Knowledge and ESPA Impact.  You can download a copy from http://www.esi.ac.uk/espa/documents/workshop-documents .  Please send us your comments, either online or by email to info [at] espa.ac.uk (subject: Comments%20on%20the%20ESPA%20frameworks) .

We have discussed how people need to be seen as part of their ecosystems, and most importantly that people will be at the heart of actions to improve their livelihoods and wellbeing from ecosystem services.
