GLNP contribution to natural capital

The GLNP's contribution to natural capital has been highlighted in the publication of a new report.

Analysis of the Partnership's eight workstreams has been undertaken to set current activities in a natural capital context. A series of non-technical case studies have been developed to provide an overview of each workstream's contribution while a technical report describes natural capital more widely and looks at how figures are produced.

With the growing trend towards natural capital in the environmental sector, being able to engage with this approach is becoming more important to both conserving and enhancing the natural environment. The inclusion of natural capital in the Government's 25 year environment plan suggests the concept is here to stay.

By undertaking an initial assessment of Greater Lincolnshire's natural capital and the contributions being made by the Partnership, the GLNP now has a sound basis for further work on natural capital in the future.
