Ecosystems Services: New Contract for MSDS Marine

Home 5 News 5 Ecosystems Services: New Contract for MSDS Marine

MSDS Marine have been contracted by Historic England to undertake research into how the heritage sector may engage with the highly influential ecosystems services approach and natural capital assessments. These assessments stem from the natural sciences and aim to identify the value of the environment through its ability to provide social and economic benefits. Through our case study along the Kent coast and Goodwin Sands MSDS Marine will work with our ecological partners, Carcinus, to consider how marine and coastal heritage may be valued and integrated within the ecosystems services approach.

Public participation will be key to discovering the value of heritage in this area, and the project team will use their network of contacts in this area to gather data to aid this understanding.
