Work Package 2: Macroeconomics

Back

Why:

Changes in ecosystem services influence economic activity and these changes are reflected in indicators, such as employment numbers, sectoral output numbers, GDP and trade values, that governments operate with. Therefore (better) understanding these links would help decision makers to understand how protecting and managing ecosystem services impacts the economy and where possible trade-offs and undesirable effects can emerge.

What:

Aim:

To provide a scoping review and research agenda for understanding the macroeconomic implications of ecosystem service change and management in the UK

Summary:

The systematic literature review will identify key ecosystem services and their connections with GDP, sectoral outputs, trade, investments, creation of jobs, etc., and will consider macroeconomic impacts on countries that provide ecosystem services for other countries. Mapping ecosystem services and their (market and non-market) values against their possible macroeconomic implications will be one component of the research. The work package will also identify and compare a range of existing models and techniques that could be applicable for assessment of macroeconomic impacts of ecosystem services as they are, or in an amended form. Additionally, the work package will establish a research agenda for quantitative assessment of the macroeconomic impacts of ecosystem services change and management.
