Green growth and ecosystem services

Green growth (economic growth that is not accompanied by increasing pressure on the capacity of the earth and the raw material stocks), ecosystem services (the benefits that nature can give to human), competing claims: these three concepts are often independently studied.

Green growth aims to have an eye for the maintenance of ecosystem services, but conversely, the role of ecosystem services for achieving green growth is barely appointed. The aim of this project is to evaluate how green growth can be linked to the concept of ecosystem services. This will include taking a look at South Korea, the "mother of green growth."
