  Operationalisation of natural capital and ecosystem services

OpenNESS aims to translate the concepts of Natural Capital (NC) and Ecosystem Services (ES) into operational frameworks that provide tested, practical and tailored solutions for integrating ES into land, water and urban management and decision-making. It examines how the concepts link to, and support, wider EU economic, social and environmental policy initiatives and scrutinizes the potential and limitations of the concepts of ES and NC.

Ongoing operationalisation during the first OpenNESS annual meeting

The OpenNESS 1st Annual Meeting took place in Budapest on 24-28 March 2014 and was hosted by ESSRG and MTA-ÖK. The main aim was to facilitate interaction and learning across the case studies. During training sessions, workshops and bilateral clinics, OpenNESS partners received further guidance and training in the use of tools, methods and conceptual frameworks. This practical knowledge was taken home and will be applied and tested in the place-based case studies. In Twitter you will find a day to day update of the presentations, workshops and social activities.
