The workshop was funded by UK’s Newton Fund to equip early career researchers from South Africa, Egypt and the UK with the conceptual and analytical tools for evaluating ecosystem services (ES) and for demonstrating their importance when considering development actions. It was also supported by a British Council Researcher Links award.

Julie and Kenny led the 3-day workshop with colleagues from Stellenbosch University and the American University Cairo, with the aim of developing understanding of how new methods in ecosystem services can help secure our water and food security.

The workshop took place at Wallenberg Research Centre in Stellenbosch and was called “Equipping early career researchers with tools for evaluating ecosystem services which underpin food and water security”. Over 30 participants from Egypt, South Africa and UK took part in the workshop, which included visits to locations where food and water security are being actively researched.
