Abstract

This report provides a summary of a workshop for the South Atlantic Natural Capital project, to assist the UK’s Overseas Territories in the South Atlantic to assess and map natural capital, value priority assets, and deploy decision support tools to secure long-term economic benefits from the sustainable management of the territories' natural assets. This support will be provided through the development and collation of spatial (mapped) evidence, and a Territory-to-Territory partnership for technical exchange and capacity building within the UK’s Overseas Territories in the region. SAERI will be providing an evidence base for Falkland Island Stakeholders to make decisions on the areas identified as a priority in this workshop.

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.
