Abstract

Natural Capital accounts report for Anguilla. Provision, regulating & cultural ecosystem services.

The purpose of this initial report is to summarise work on the physical and monetary flows of natural capital on Anguilla. It describes the data identified and accessed in order to provide a preliminary assessment of these values, and identify options and data needs for a subsequent phase of work. This initial report links to wider JNCC work to build up preliminary national natural capital accounts for other UK Overseas Territories.

These initial accounts provide a baseline and structure that can be built upon in future iterations.

This study was undertaken as part of a programme of Natural Capital Assessment (NCA) in the UK's Caribbean Overseas Territories implemented by JNCC and conducted by Eftec. 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.
