South Atlantic Overseas Territories Natural Capital Assessment: St Helena Process 2018

Terrestrial Overseas Territories Ecosystem assessment

Abstract

Between 20 and 27 January 2018, Ness Smith and Tara Pelembe, from SAERI visited St Helena to introduce the South Atlantic Natural Capital Assessment Project more widely on-island, and to discuss how a natural capital assessment approach could help to inform environmental decision making on the island. They met with a wide range of stakeholders including the Governor, Councillors and Government officials as well as farmers, NGOs and utility providers. This culminated in a full-day meeting on Friday 26 January with key stakeholders at the Mantis Hotel to discuss the most important environmental benefits, and to prioritise what should be assessed within the project.

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.
