(www.TEEBweb.org) is an international initiative to draw attentionto the global economic benefits of ecosystems and biodiversity, to highlight the growing costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystemdegradation, and to draw together expertise from the fields of science, economics and policy to enable practical actions movingforward.TEEB is hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme and supported by the European Commission and variousgovernments.
The TEEB Manual for Cities: Ecosystem Services in Urban Management
When we published the TEEB for Local and Regional PolicyMakers report in 2010, we hoped we had provided an inspiringstarting point for thinking about policy in a new way, one whichdoes not take nature for granted. We are indebted to thecontributions of individuals and organisations, providing examplesof policy options, case studies and experience from around theworld. We could not hope to cover everything within a 200 pagereport, but we did hope that the report would stimulate others toapply relevant aspects of the content to their particular situation.ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability have done just thatby creating this, TEEB Manual for Cities: Ecosystem Servicesin Urban Management, in partnership with the TEEB for Localand Regional Policy Makers team. This is an excellent publicationthat builds upon the TEEB reports and tailors the informationspecifically for an urban context. It highlights how a focus onecosystem services and their valuation can create direct benefitsfor urban areas and can be performed even with limited resources.We congratulate the ICLEI Cities Biodiversity Center team for thisinitiative and we hope this handbook will take its place alongsidethe TEEB reports as an essential tool for local and regional policymakers everywhere.Heidi Wittmer and Haripriya Gundimeda
