Natural Capital Indicators and Metrics Evidence Review

Project: Other project (funded)Consultancy and other services

Project Details


The Natural Capital Indicators and Metrics Evidence Review is a searchable literature review of the environmental properties which support the provision of ecosystem services, and the metrics used to measure these.
The tool is based on over 900 scientific papers across eight broad habitat types. It provides a searchable summary of the underlying evidence, and includes links to the underpinning scientific papers. Summary evidence review sheets have also been produced for each broad habitat type. As well as identifying which metrics have been used to date, the tool helps to highlight where gaps in the current evidence base exist. This tool can be used in any work which needs to identify or apply metrics for measuring change in natural capital. It can also be used to understand the evidence base for environmental properties affecting the provision of ecosystem services.
