This report provides an assessment of cultural ecosystem services and benefits resulting from interactions between people and the natural environment on Ascension Island. It is part of a series of Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) assessments undertaken across the UK South Atlantic Overseas Territories, including the Falkland Islands, St Helena and Tristan da Cunha.
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.
