Scoping Ecosystem Services for Impact Assessment (WRI)
Aim of the resource:
<p>This manual allows the identification of the key ecosystem services that (i) could be impacted by, or (ii) could constrain the successful implementation of the project. The complete manual covers six steps for integrating ecosystem services into corporate social and environmental impact analyses.
