Workshop to launch NOBEL and DHDA projects - 02/10/2019

Workshop NOBEL & DHDA
Valuation of services provided by trees.

The NOBEL project (Novel business models and mechanisms for the sustainable supply of and payment for forest ecosystem services), in which the BETA is invested, aims at assessing the current and future role of the functions, goods and services, both commercial and non-commercial, from the forests and develop strategies and mechanisms to ensure them in a sustainable way. The Innovation Territory "Des Hommes et Des Arbres" (DHDA), coordinated by the Grand Nancy city, aims to financially enhance the management of tree ecosystems that are in favour of an increase in the level of ecosystem services (ES) provided.
Both projects are thinking of developing new tools to improve the supply of forest externalities and facilitate their financing. The idea of ​​an "ecosystem services stock market" could help develop a market for ecosystem and environmental services related to forests and trees.
The objective of the workshop, co-organized by the BETA and Greater Nancy city and funded by the NOBEL project, was to identify the options and barriers to the development of such a market. The participants were able to map together the actors mobilized / to be mobilized, the mechanisms and methodologies available or in development, the deposits on the Grand Est region, the pioneering initiatives (benchmark), in order to refine the joint roadmaps of the Nobel project and the DHDA stock market (details in the attachment).
This goal has been achieved by bringing together actors with experience or vision of market development for ecosystem and environmental services. The results of the workshop include: identification of potential synergies of cooperation among regional actors, identification of potential markets, assessment of institutional support needs and knowledge gaps (need for studies / research), opportunities installation of devices to operationalize the valuation of services provided.
