Integrating Ecosystem Services into NAICS/NACPS

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!
