Why:

The coastal/marine environments encompass a diverse range of habitats (natural capital stock) which can supply a significant flow of ecosystem services of immense value to the economy and wider society. Coastal zones are however highly dynamic environments under constant environmental change, with local, regional and international/global drivers and pressures all playing a role in the change process. An adaptive management approach is required in order to sustainably manage the stock and flow of coastal/marine ecosystem services. A number of key components of a decision support system for adaptive management remain under- developed – indicators of change, scenarios to kelp cope with future uncertainty, models to better understand the change process and its consequences for ecosystem services, and valuation data to aid trade- off choice making. This WP aims to help to start filling some of these gaps.

What:

Aim:

To value ecosystem services in coastal and marine environments; investigate how they link to changes in terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems through appropriate indicators of change; and understand how future changes to the marine environment may impact ecosystem service delivery

Summary:

This work package will review ecosystem service valuation estimates for coastal and marine environments, effectively providing a link to the land-based valuations reported in work package (WP) 3a. This would include guidelines for connecting the land-use change modeling in WP3a to estuarine and coastal models. This work will be supplemented by a marine-focused futures scenario exercise.
