JNCC embarked on the ‘Natural Capital in the Caribbean and South Atlantic Overseas Territories’ project in late 2016. The project undertook an assessment of natural capital in six of the UK’s Caribbean and South Atlantic Overseas Territories and built capacity to monitor environmental change and to integrate environmental evidence into economic policy making and infrastructure planning. This report summarises processes and outputs from the South Atlantic Natural Capital Project on Tristan da Cunha. It provides a regional overview of the South Atlantic in section 2, whilst section 3 provides further context in terms of geography, governance, population, economy and environment of Tristan da Cunha. Section 4 provides an overview of project governance, stakeholder engagement and the overarching approach it took on Tristan da Cunha. Outputs from the assessment can be found in section 5.
