Project Description

Economic report for the Natural Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy of Catalonia

To analyze the positive economic impacts that will derive from the implementation of the Strategy of the Natural Heritage and Biodiversity of Catalonia, a study has been carried out to establish the methodology for evaluating the benefits that will be provided by compliance with the Strategy in terms of ecosystem services or other socio-ecological repercussions for Catalonia. The study was carried out on the basis of previous experiences in various countries around the world, duly adapted to the objectives and characteristics of the Strategy.

The final objective has been to have the tools to analyze the direct / indirect and monetary / non-monetary positive impact that will involve the deployment of the different lines of action of the Strategy, and that will be applied from the first planned follow-up report. .

The report was made jointly by INSTA, ENT and the European Institute of Environmental Policies .
