5. Using natural capital assessment and valuation to determine the impact of proposed development
From simple expert-based assessments to quantitative assessment, to mapping, valuation and accounting, through this case study from Stirling you will gain insight into the range of techniques that can be used for assessing the potential impact of proposals and development plans, including the relative advantages and challenges of each. You will also measure the environmental, social and economic benefits of investing in the natural environment against a case study from Stirling, detailing two major projects: a city park and riverside development.
