Natural capital accounts and ecosystem services opportunity mapping tool survey

Following on from the publication of a series of Greater Manchester natural capital accounts and ecosystem services opportunity mapping tools we would like to gain a better understanding of how they are being been used in decision making processes. This includes identifying examples of how they’ve been used and any particular issues encountered.

We are therefore inviting you, as partners and key stakeholders, to participate in this survey which is being undertaken by Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Environment Agency as part of the Natural Course project.  A link to the survey is provided below which takes approx 10 minutes to complete and please feel free to share with your networks and other colleagues that may be interested.

The information collected from the survey will be analysed and used to help identify further ways of supporting their uptake and improving usability.  A short report of the survey result and key findings will be produced and published on the Natural Course website (

Please be reassured that respondent anonymity is protected and it’s not possible to identify individuals.

The closing date for responses is Friday 28th August 2020.
