Ecosystem Services & Site Valuation began!!!

Field surveying has started  in May 2017, the team began to develop Valuation of Velidab according to the TESSA Toolkit for Ecosystem Service: Site-Based Assessment, since understanding the impacts on ecosystem services of actual and potential changes in state at individual sites is important for promoting better planning decisions to support both biodiversity conservation and ecosystem service delivery. Until now this approach has been relatively little used because it has been assumed that ecosystem services are technically difficult and expensive to measure. This toolkit is designed to overcome this obstacle by providing practical guidance on how to identify which services may be significant at a site of interest, what data are needed to measure them, what methods or sources can be used to obtain the data and how to communicate the results.
