IEA504/4 Ecosystem Services


  • Credit: 4
  • Semester: 2
  • Prerequisite: None


This course focuses on ecosystem services by exploring how ecosystem services can be valued, measured and monetized/unmonetized by society across the spectrum of four aspects: provisioning services, regulating services, supporting services and cultural services. Both theoretical and practical applications of ecosystem services and valuation are explored through case studies. Strategies for effective group work will be explored, and the students will be able to reflect on their participation and their role within the learning group.

This course includes guest lectures, video and film shows, student seminars and a group project related to a selected community and its ecosystem services and issues and ways to solve them in a transdisciplinary approach.
