TEEB Training Group Exercise 1 1. Identify an important biodiversity and ecosystem service based industry in your country (e.g. agriculture, forestry, mining/extractives) the 3-5 most important ecosystem services that are affected by this industry those ecosystem services values that are not well reflected in markets and those that are not appropriate measures and indicators of status of these ecosystem services ©TEEB
