Natural Capital Ireland is a partner on the pioneering INCASE project, which is testing Natural Capital Accounting principles in several river catchments in Ireland.
We are working with colleagues in Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, NUI Galway, University of Limerick and international ecosystem accounting experts, IDEEA Group, to apply the UN standard for Natural Capital Accounting, known as the SEEA.
The purpose these accounts is to support more informed decision-making by policymakers, land owners and managers and a range of other stakeholders. Natural Capital Accounts integrate economic and environmental themes, and provide an evidence base for investments in rural development, health and much more.
