UK National Ecosystem Assessment Follow-on - NR0150

Description
The aim of this project is to provide greater understanding and improved quantification of the value of the natural environment. And to develop accounting and decision support tools that can be used by government, business and the voluntary sector to understand the value of the natural environment and the impacts of their decisions. A healthy and resilient natural environment underpins our economy and wellbeing. This research helps us understand the value of our natural assets and reflect that value in decision making across all sectors of society. The report and supporting materials are a resource for all sectors of society to use to inform their work. This includes central Government, local authorities, environmental groups, government agencies and businesses and the report will be produced following extensive consultation with these sectors.
Objective
The research aims to:
i. Develop further our understanding of the economic and social value of nature;
ii. Develop tools and products to operationalise the ecosystems approach;
