...the benefits that nature provides to people

 

Ireland’s environment is a priceless asset that we all depend on for food, water, air, energy, inspiration, beauty and wonder. 

We all impact on it, too: our way of life is the major driver of climate change, biodiversity loss, and water, soil and air pollution.

Integrated, evidence-based solutions are urgently needed to inform policy and support decision-making that recognises nature’s limits and enables us to live within them.

 

Natural Capital Accounting is one such potential solution. A new approach, it seeks to connect ecosystems and the benefits they provide to people with the beneficiaries, using methods familiar to statistics and economics.

Our project, INCASE, combines the skills of natural scientists, economists and statisticians to account for nature's benefits to people so that we can take stock of what we have in a way that helps everyone to better understand nature's importance, and to manage it in a more sustainable way.
