UK NEA follow-on phase

Related research initiatives

This follow-on phase will complement the variety of other related research initiatives that are currently underway in the UK:

The Ecosystems Knowledge Network is a resource for anyone wanting to share knowledge or learn about the practical benefits of an ecosystems approach to both people and nature.
The Valuing Nature Network brings together natural scientists and economists, alongside decision-makers in business and policy, who have an interest in valuing nature.
 
The Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network (ESKN) works to catalyse innovation across emerging environmental technologies and accelerate the transition to a low carbon, resource and energy efficient economy by connecting businesses, universities, other research organisations and Government agencies.
 
 
 
The Rural Economy and Land Use Programme (Relu) carries out research on the challenges faced by rural areas of the UK in order to inform future policy and practice.
 
 


Biodiversity and Ecosystem Service Sustainability (BESS) aims to increase scientific understanding of the role of biodiversity in key ecosystem processes while developing a thriving, interdisciplinary scientific community undertaking research related to biodiversity and ecosystem services.
 
Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) is a seven year, £40 million research programme funded by DFID, ESRC and NERC to provide new knowledge demonstrating how ecosystem services can reduce poverty and enhance well-being for the world's poor.
 

The Scottish Government’s Strategic research programme includes a Theme on Ecosystem Services, full title: Scotland's environmental assets, biodiversity and ecosystem services are identified and valued to inform decision making. This will contribute to the mapping of Scotland's Ecosystem Services with an understanding of the dynamics of Ecosystem Services supply. The work will also assess the monetary and non-monetary value of Ecosystem Services. The third element will be the application of an Ecosystem Approach, covering environmental benefit trade-offs.

International initiatives

The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is a new development that will act as an interface between the scientific community and policy makers. It is the result of three recent intergovernmental, multi-stakeholder meetings (Malaysia 2008, Kenya 2009, Republic of Korea 2010), addressing gaps in the science-policy interface and aims to act as a global mechanism for bridging these gaps. Once fully operationalized at the upcoming plenary sessions in late 2011 and early 2012, IPBES will collect, synthesize and analyses information, building capacity for and promoting the use of science in decision making.

The Natural Capital Project—a partnership among WWF, The Nature Conservancy, University of Minnesota and Stanford University—works to provide decision makers with reliable ways to assess the true value of the services that ecosystems provide.
