The ARIES team is collaborating with the Interamerican Development Bank to link ecosystem service models with economic (computable general equilibrium) models. The OPEN Integrated Economic-Environmental Modeling platform (OPEN IEEM) will dynamically link economic change, land-use change, and ecosystem services at national scales in Latin America and the Caribbean.

OPEN IEEM will also build a first-ever ecosystem service data and model repository targeted to a region that offers fully Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data, making future ecosystem service assessments in Latin America and the Caribbean faster, more transparent, and of higher quality.

See this blog post for more information on the project.
