Valuing Nature Programme Research Goal:

Human Health & Wellbeing

The Valuing Nature Programme aims to better understand and represent the complexities of the natural environment in valuation analyses and decision making and to consider the wider economic, societal and cultural value of ecosystem services. 

In this context, the research goal is to improve our understanding of the value of the UK's natural environment for human health (physical and mental) and wellbeing within and across the following three areas:

•    natural hazards and extreme weather events
•    human exposure to pathogens and aquatic toxins
•    urban ecosystems.
