Cultural ecosystem services in St Helena 2019
St Helena is a remote volcanic island situated in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is home to around 4,500 residents, 90% of whom are St Helenians and the rest expatriates. This report presents the findings of an empirical study of the cultural ecosystem services and benefits arising from the interaction between people and the natural and historical environment in St Helena.
This study was undertaken as part of a programme of Natural Capital Assessments (NCAs) 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.
