Abstract

Scientific knowledge about ecosystem services is rapidly being translated into policy objectives, and several EU member states have included ecosystem services in their policy programmes. However, stakeholders are experiencing many problems applying such policies in rural areas. This WOt paper describes early experiences with the ecosystem services approach in terms of opportunities and barriers. It also formulates alternative application pathways that could be supported by the many stakeholders involved.
