The overall aim of the course was to build the capacity of Liberian natural resource managers to understand concepts behind measuring and evaluating ecosystem services, and to use the TESSA toolkit at their priority sites in Liberia. By building this capacity, Liberian managers will be better equipped to provide the information needed for stakeholders to better manage their natural resources sustainably and to deliver results to augment the on-going work under Liberia’s TEEB assessment.
