Capacity: New faces and fresh ideas in Alberta

Capacity. What does that mean and how do you measure it? Capacity building can mean a variety of things to different people and organizations. The Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity Network (ESBN) members understand this is a challenge, but equally know it can’t be ignored. To the ESBN, capacity means having the understanding, the competencies and the knowledge to develop and execute ecosystem services (ES) and biodiversity markets. Capacity means we understand the science, the economics and the social benefits to develop ES and biodiversity markets. Capacity signifies we have the means to develop accounting protocols, assessment platforms and decisions support systems.
