NatCap Marine Planning Use-Cases
The Natural Capital Project (NatCap) aims to integrate the values of nature into all major decisions affecting the environment and human well-being. NatCap has developed practical, science-based approaches and tools that quantify, map, and value services provided by nature. While NatCap has some experience with marine planning, we do not know, nor do, everything. Therefore, we have compiled helpful information from others in the marine planning community and added our experience to the mix.
