Applying a natural capital approach to the marine environment: Learning and recommendations from the North Devon and Suffolk Marine Pioneer
4th February 2021
The Marine Pioneer was one of four Defra pioneer programmes set up to test practical ways to deliver the ambition and goals of the 25 Year Environment Plan. We were asked to test the application of the natural capital approach, integrate planning and delivery further, explore innovative funding and share best practice of what works. This presentation from the Marine Management Organisation’s Marine Pioneer Programme lead will highlight the work carried out during the Marine Pioneer, the learning on the four asks, as well as fisheries, protected areas, community empowerment and applying net gain to marine and our recommendations.
