UK National Ecosystem Assessment follow-on phase

content

Staff at the Centre for Mountain Studies (Dr Ros Bryce and Dr Jayne Glass) were directly involved in three work packages of the UK National Ecosystem Assessment Follow-on (NEAFO) project, which ran from 2012-2014.

Work Package 6: Cultural, Shared and Plural Values

This work package recognised how accounting for shared, cultural and plural values of ecosystems can enable robust decisions to be made about the natural environment that better reflect the values of society. Dr Ros Bryce was a member of the research team.

Further information about this work package can be found on the Living With Environmental Change website.

Work Packages 9 and 10: Tools - Applications, Linkages and Benefits (TABLES)

Dr Jayne Glass worked with colleagues at Birmingham City University and a range of other organisations on the TABLES project.

Led by Professor Alister Scott (School of the Built Environment, Birmingham City University), the work focused specifically on integrating the principles and thinking behind the ecosystem approach and ecosystem services into the development, adaptation and testing of existing tools to improve policy and decision-making processes. The research team includes academics, policy and practice representatives, as well as a number of case study partners.

The results of the study were compiled into a user-friendly website, which uses the 'NEAT Tree' to provide guidance for policy- and decision-makers who wish to incorporate the ecosystem approach into their work.
