Report on workshops: Natural Capital Assessment in the South Atlantic 2017

Marine Terrestrial Overseas Territories Ecosystem services Natural capital Ascension Falkland Islands South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands

Abstract

This report details the main objectives of several workshops carried out in the UK's Overseas Territories of the Falkland Islands, Ascension, and South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands. The main objectives of the workshops were to increase understanding about why a study on natural capital is useful for the islands in the South Atlantic, and to develop the scope for natural capital assessments in the territories.

This study was undertaken as part of a programme of Natural Capital Assessment (NCA) in the UK's South Atlantic Overseas Territories implemented by JNCC and conducted by SAERI. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the UK Government through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), the work sits under the Environmental Resilience programme which includes objectives to integrate natural capital considerations into economic and social development planning.
