In this recent publication Rudolf de Groot, Associate Professor, Environmental Systems Analysis (ESA-WUR) and Chair Ecosystem Services Partnership, and Simon Moolenaar (PhD) Head of Science & Education at Commonland lay out the case for business-driven landscape restoration and introduce the “Guidelines for Integrated Assessment to value and capture the benefits of landscape restoration, nature conservation and sustainable ecosystem management”.
The Guidelines are a practical methodology developed to analyze, quantify, and where possible, monetize the benefits of large-scale landscape restoration. The publication presents a case study, from a site in Spain that is transitioning to a multi-functional land use system, which demonstrates several steps of the Guidelines framework.
