Policy makers need scientific advice that can demonstrate the role of natural systems for human well-being and economic development. At the same time, policy makers need to balance the role of natural systems with competing interests and opportunities. Examples from my own work in marine policy as well from experiences at Conservation International (CI) will illustrate interaction of science and policy making. This talk will also highlight the scientific work of CI as an important basis for conservation action on the ground and in the water. Headquartered in the US, CI is an international environmental NGO with other 20 years of experience working with governments, communities, corporations and civil society partners.
