Rosimeiry Portela is an Ecological Economist/Senior Director in the Betty & Gordon Moore Center for Ecosystem Science and Economics division at Conservation International (CI). She leads research that relies on a variety of biophysical and economics modeling techniques to estimate provision, benefits and values of ecosystem services at multiple scales in terrestrial and marine biomes. These efforts are coordinated across several CI divisions and field offices as well as through key external partners, ensuring that research on ecosystem services remains policy-relevant. Dr. Portela is co-PI of the recently launched Ecosystem Values Assessment & Accounting (EVA), a CI-led initiative to design and field test a replicable and scalable framework for incorporating nature’s value into decision-making and informing more sustainable policies and practices. She is a member of advisory board/expert and steering committee of several initiatives, such as the Policy and Technical Expert Committee (PTEC) of the World Bank-led Wealth Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services (WAVES), and the UNEP-led Project for Ecosystem Services (ProEcoserv).
