Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, participated in the High-Level Conference on Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services (MAES) in Europe on 22 May 2014 in Brussels. The facilitators were Julia Marton-Lefèvre, Director-General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and Pavan Sukhdev, Study Leader for The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (“TEEB”) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The other panellists were Nantia Giannakopoulou, General Secretary of the Greek Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change, representing the Greek presidency, Lisa Emelia Svensson, Ambassador for Oceans, Seas and Fresh Water at the Swedish Ministry of the Environment, Hans Bruyninckx, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency (EEA), and Mihail Dumitru, Deputy Director-General of the DG "Agriculture and Rural Development" of the EC. The conference provided a platform to present the work undertaken to date at EU and Member State level as well as contributions from key stakeholders. It demonstrated how reliable, high-quality information on the state of ecosystems and the services they provide can contribute to the advancement of biodiversity objectives, and to the integration of natural capital concerns into key EU sectoral policies.
