The aim of this research was to identify and, as far as possible, quantify many of the crucial but hidden environmental assets that are derived from the River Mersey to the Liverpool City Region (LCR). The study is based on an ecosystem service approach using Arup’s own Natural Capital tool. Such an approach offers a pragmatic, rational approach to natural resource management that is familiar to economic analysts. The present study sought to provide improvement of knowledge on ecosystem services associated with the Mersey, highlighting knowledge gaps and pooling existing evidence relating to specific themes, where appropriate.
