Project Description Without knowledge of spatial distribution of ES, no proper resources planning or NRM. This tool allows countries to identify ES. After a short training countries can operate the model.
Project Objectives and expected Achievables Regional training sessions can be provided in the use of QuickScan, for identification of the Ecosystem Services.

In each session a group of 3-5 people for each interested/participating IPBES state can be trained, during 4 days. They will use their own spatial maps, country data in this exercise.

Number of training sessions depends on the budget and participating countries, and a budget can be worked out in more detail.
