Inventory of data sources for quantification of eco system services

The purpose of this project has been to make an inventory of available statistics and data sources that can be used to find measurable and quantifiable aspects of eco system services. Around 90 data sources have been studied in the inventory.

The inventory can further be used to examine the overall data supply and identify areas where important data is missing or can be improved.

The report was commissioned by the Environmental Ministry in Sweden.

Many reports have been published in the series Environmental Accounts since 1998. They are accessible online at
