Natural Capital Accounting at the Local & Landscape scale: An Introduction
March 8, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
There is growing interest in the use of accounting frameworks to understand the value of the natural environment. The aim is to inform planning, management and investment decisions that minimise risks and maximise opportunities. They are typically divided into asset accounts, maintenance costs, physical flow and monetary flows. Different frameworks help distinguish maintenance costs, physical flows of ecosystem services and their monetary values, and asset values.
Alongside efforts to develop natural capital accounts for large organisations and countries, accounts are being produced for natural features across smaller areas of land and water. This includes private estates, public parks and protected landscapes.
These seminars will introduce the process of accounting for the value of the natural environment at the local and landscape scale.
