What is the value of urban nature ? URBAN EA maps and values ecosystem services in the Oslo Region, and tests methods for ecosystem accounting at the municipal level.
NINA conducts research on ecosystem services from urban ecosystems , both green spaces in the built area and peri-urban nature areas. Here you will find publications and news about development and testing of ecosystem accounts for municipalities, and research and development on the UNs Experimental Ecosystem Accounting (EEA) and its application to urban areas.
