Some methods, such as the Land use based ES capacity matrix assessment in French Guiana can easily be applied in neighboring countries, however, it is important to collect data from the according region.
For example, if we were to conduct such an assessment in Brazil, it would be imperative to organize a comparative participatory stakeholder workshop as we conducted in Cayenne in October 2019. This way, we can ensure that the outcomes of the assessments are comparable.
If comparability of results is not in the focus, the method can be easily adjusted to different LULC types and different ES - this is no problem at all.
this indeed is highly interesting from a scientific point of view, and a publication on this topic - a comparison between ES assessments in Suriname and French Guiana is about to be published on this very aspect - Ill keep you updated as soon as we have a link to share!
