Participants also took fieldwork on ecological services and poverty alleviation in local counties after the workshop. With the first-hand data gained there, they proposed a guideline for applying for further projects of ESPA.
The workshop was designed to boost ties between different partners of ESPA which is co-funded by Department for International Development, Economic and Social Research Council, and Natural Environment Research Council of UK.
