What can we learn and transfer from the french mainland MAES process to French Guiana territories? Is it possible to do this transfer when ecosystems in both areas differ in such a large extent?

The french MAES process with its national ecosystem assessment shows that there are multiple ways in which the French population benefits from functioning ecosystems and the services they supply. Different methods are shown to effectively map and assess ecosystem services. Even though ecosystems differ, the conceptual and methodological knowledge, as well as the institutional knowledge will be beneficial for French Guiana. The French examples, also those applying matrix assessments (see Campagne et al. 2017; 2018; 2019) will be of value for the French Guiana case study and the initialization of the MAES process.

Dear Gerald, thanks alot for your comment.

I totally agree, this learning process must be mutual to be beneficial - for EU mainland, there is lots to learn from the case studies in the Overseas, and much to gain, as these territories can be better included into national and EU wide strategies as a result.
