Strategic Environmental Assessment and Ecosystem Services




Ecosystem services are the benefits people obtain from ecosystems (examples are listed in Table 1). Some of these, such as the provisioning services (or goods) like food, timber and fresh water, are well-known and routinely included in assessments. Others, such as the regulating services of carbon storage and sequestration, watershed protection, storm protection, pollination, or the cultural services of recreation and spiritual values, are often overlooked in policies, plans and programmes (PPP) preparation because they are not traded in the market and internalized in traditional cost-benefit analyses.
