Connecting ecosystem services to Swedish cities
Report in Swedish first to explain benefits of ecosystem services in urban development
A recently published report plows new ground by introducing the concept and knowledge around ecosystem services more readily available to Swedish urban planners and other practitioners.
Johan Colding from the Beijer Institute and Lars Marcus from the Swedish School of Architecture are lead authors, but had support from Stephan Barthel, Erik Andersson, Åsa Gren and Sara Borgström from the Beijer Institute and Stockholm Resilience Centre.
“Publications and debates about ecosystem services are often very research oriented but rarely make connections to urban environments directly. Furthermore, they are almost always in English. We saw a great need to produce a report in Swedish that connects ecosystem services to the city and is available to more people,” says Johan Colding.
