Event description

Description


A combined dissemination and training workshop for the Irwell Management Catchment Natural Capital Project Development Support Project and the Greater Manchester Ecosystem Services Opportunity Mapping Project.

The first half of the session will focus on the support provided to four pilot projects within the Irwell Management Catchment, and how each has adopted a natural capital approach to project development.

The second half of the session will provide an introduction, demonstration and coaching session on the use of the Ecosystem Services Opportunity Mapping Tool hosted on MappingGM which has recently been extended to full Greater Manchester coverage. The tool will be launched at the Mayors Green Summit and this workshop will provide support on how to use it in practice.

The outcomes for this session are to:

  • Provide an overview of the support provided to the pilot projects.
  • Presentations from the pilot projects on their experiences and challenges.
  • Details on the key lessons learned when adopting a natural capital approach.
  • Presentation on the expansion of the Ecosystem Services Opportunity Mapping Tool.
  • Provide assistance on the use of the mapping tool on MappingGM.
