Natural Capital Synthesis Reports

Kick off meeting -Jan 2018

The purpose of this call is to fund researchers to produce short synthesis reports which a) define the current state of knowledge to address specific policy or practice needs in the language and format that is accessible to users; and b) define key gaps in knowledge that should be addressed by further research.

The funding has been provided by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the Valuing Nature Programme.
