Review of approaches for the assessment of marine Natural Capital in the context of UK marine environmental policy and management 2022

Marine JNCC Publications 0963-8091 Marine 702 Environmental management Marine Natural capital

Abstract

This report was commissioned to collate existing knowledge on how natural capital approaches have been applied to marine and coastal environments and to gain insights from this experience for future management and policy work in the UK, through an evaluation of the existing evidence base.

The report presents the key findings of the review of relevant studies, frameworks and tools (henceforth, jointly referred to as ‘products’); the overall results of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis; and the findings of a Quick Scoping Review (QSR), which focussed on the priority gap identified by the SWOT analyses, namely, understanding the distribution of marine natural capital benefits and who accrues them.

Appendix 3 – Review Catalogue and SWOT analyses workbook – is provided as a separate resource.

The project is part of Defra’s Marine Natural Capital Ecosystem Assessment (mNCEA) programme.
