TEEBAgriFood Foundations Report Writers Workshop

13.02.17 - 15.02.17

 

The first TEEBAgriFood writers’ workshop to develop the ‘Scientific and Economic Foundations Report’, with the support of the New Venture Fund (NVF), was hosted by the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) at the David Attenborough Building in Cambridge (UK) from 13-15 February 2017.

The workshop brought together a core team of 35 experts and researchers working on issues related to the economic interdependencies between ecological, agricultural and human systems. During the course of the three-day workshop, participants reflected and built upon an existing report wireframe toward the design and refinement of detailed chapter outlines, identified opportunities for chapter linkages, cross-referencing and messaging, and decided on timelines, writing teams and tools for delivery of a report in December 2017.
