1. Introduction & Objectives
Accounting for ecosystem and ecosystem services is gaining growing attention. Human activities (including both economic sectors and households) do affect the capacity of ecosystem units to provide services that in turn generate benefits. To measure environmental resources as tangible benefits that enter the market circuit or that are withdrawn for own consumption is not sufficient. Only the assessment of services as flows can provide us with relevant information on issues such as sustainable /unsustainable management practices and land use, and the identification of a causality nexus between human actors and ecosystem services.
