ESPA is holding its Annual Science Conference in London on the 19th and 20th of November 2012. The goal of the conference is to bring the ESPA research community up-to-date with developments in ESPA science, including new results, new projects, tools and approaches, and to provide an opportunity for researchers working on ES- and/or PA-related work to meet and interact with others working on similar issues.

Speakers will engage attendees in a dialogue of topics relevant to the achievement of poverty alleviation driven by ecosystem services, and will represent a range of ESPA-funded researchers and other eminent scholars. It is hoped we will have plenaries presented by Partha Dasgupta (University of Cambridge), Ian Bateman (University of East Anglia) and Ben Ramalingam (Institute of Development Studies/Overseas Development Institute, yet to be confirmed). Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
