Mapping Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services in the Nene Valley (October 2016)
The natural environment underpins our wellbeing and economic prosperity, providing multiple benefits to society, yet is consistently under-valued in decision-making.
This report is a summary of a major project to identify, map and value natural capital and ecosystem services across the Nene Valley. The aims are to highlight the key benefits provided by the natural environment, to increase understanding of the interdependencies between the natural environment, people and the economy, and to help planners and decision makers protect, enhance and restore the natural environment for the benefit of both people and wildlife. A technical report accompanies this summary report, containing many more maps and further detail on the methods and results reported here (see back cover for link).
