A team of IALE members recently pulished their pilot-study on "Mapping and assessing ecosystem services for sustainable policy and decision-making in Eritrea" OpenAccess with Springer Nature in Ambio Journal. Read their paper here: https://doi.org/10.1007/s13280-023-01841-4

The mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services (MAES) is key to inform sustainable policy and decision-making at national and sub-national levels. Responding to the paucity of research in sub-Saharan Africa, we conduct a pilot study for Eritrea that aims to map and assess the temporal dynamics of key ecosystems and their services. We reviewed policy and legal documents, analyzed land cover changes and estimated the potential for ecosystem services supply through an expert-based matrix approach. Our results showed that from 2015 to 2019, the potential supply of the ecosystem services analyzed (e.g., crop provisioning, water supply and recreation) increased, with the exception of wood supply. Overall, our study presents policy-relevant insights as to where to conserve, develop, or restore ecosystem services supply in Eritrea. Our approach is transferable to similar data scarce contexts and can thereby support policies toward more sustainable land development for people and nature.
The International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) is providing funding to offset costs associated with attending the 11th IALE 2023 World Congress in Nairobi, Kenya, from 10th – 15th, July 2023. The organizing committee seeks applications from countries that have been historically underrepresented at previous IALE World Congresses.
We especially encourage applications from graduate students and earlier career scholars from the Global South, with particular focus on women, to apply for the Foreign Scholar Travel Award (FSTA) for funds to offset registration and travel costs associated with attending the IALE 2023 World Congress in Nairobi.
