Ecospace: spatial modelling and accounting for ecosystem services

This project is funded by the European Research Council and aims to develop new methods and insights for the mapping of and accounting for ecosystem services.

The project is implemented in the Netherlands (Limburg Province), Indonesia (Central Kalimantan Province) and Norway (Telemark Fylke). For these three provinces specific maps are being produced for ecosystem services and ecosystem assets, in both physical and monetary units.  In addition, ecosystem services are linked to land use management options, which are defined on the basis of stakeholder consultation.
