Work Package 4: Cultural ecosystem services
Minimize

Back

Why:

Cultural ecosystem services (CES) are often the most challenging aspects of ecosystem assessments due to inconsistencies in terminology, conceptual frameworks, methodology and approach to measurement.  This project will develop new approaches and evidence for assessing cultural ecosystem services and provide insights on how cultural ecosystem services can be integrated into decision making.

What:

Aim:

To extend the theoretical, methodological and practical understanding of Cultural Ecosystem Services.

Summary:

 The research will look at practical approaches for assessing CES, testing these in ‘live’ geographical contexts of policy and decision making. It will review existing GIS based datasets and their potential for providing indicators of different environmental qualities and attributes that are of relevance to assessing CES in different environmental settings.  Case studies are also a central component of the work package. They are designed to be illustrative of different facets of accounting for CES in decision making and will involve new empirical research as well as synoptic accounts of existing work.

Methods/tools being developed:

Ecosystem service indicators

Anticipated Case Studies:

There are three types of case studies:

Major case studies

o   Assessment of the strategic rationale behind use of the NIA suggested indicators for CES.

o   Assessment of how NIAs (nationally) view these indicators: (plausibility/ utility/ practicability)  and how these are being modified/ adapted

o   Participatory GIS based cultural mapping exercise linking indicators, mapping and non-conversational media/genre

        Small case studies investigating how particular environmental settings accrue cultural value and significance

o   Lizard peninsula in Cornwall

o   Jurassic Coastline in Dorset

o   Between the moors - The Culm valley Devon

        Tool kit analysis case studies involving qualitative and indicator based approaches to analyse cultural significance of particular settings

o   The National Trust’s “Recharging the power of place”

o   English Heritage’s “Knowing your place” 

o   Scottish Natural Heritage’s “Talking about our place”

o   Northern Ireland recent Review of State of the Environment reporting

o   Welsh Government State of the Environment indicators and related consultation?
