Developing a modelling tool to assist with prioritising investments in natural capital - BE0126

Description
The natural capital model and subsequent tool will help users to prioritise environmental interventions (as part of the development of the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan) by signposting those with greatest net benefits and value for money.
Objective
1) To fund the development and expansion of spatially explicit, integrated, natural capital model to cover a broad range of Defra Group interests, including flood risk management and land management change; and

2) To develop an accessible user interface for the natural capital model (thereby turning it into a useable tool for Government and other stakeholders).
