AFORDable Futures LLC is collaborating with its research partners to develop an integrated framework for classifying ecosystem services in a system compatible with the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and the North American Product Classification System (NAPCS) .
These are databases managed by the US Census Bureau which collect economic data down to a county level. We are working to both systematize ecosystem services into a clear/specific classification system and then linking this to these datasets. A discussion on this will be happening during the forthcoming ACES Meeting in December in Phoenix, Arizona.
Keep an eye out at the meeting for details!
