The Sub-Global Assessment (SGA) Network is hosted by a Secretariat which operates through a joint arrangement between UNEP-WCMC and The Cropper Foundation of Trinidad and Tobago.
The SGA Network aims to create a platform for stakeholders involved in undertaking and using ecosystem assessments from local to regional levels. The Network sets out to do the following:
• connect ecosystem assessment stakeholders such as practitioners, decision-makers and the scientific community
• facilitate knowledge sharing amongst network members and other stakeholders
• build capacity to undertake and use ecosystem assessments
• encourage and support new assessment work
• support relevant decision making processes, such as IPBES and other MEAs
