Ecosystem services cartography in the Basque Country now available
The quantifying and mapping of ecosystem services are considered essential requirements for the implementation of the ecosystem services concept in decision making on land use planning and sustainable land use management. Understanding the spatial distribution of the different services provides crucial information for identifying key conservation and/or restoration zones as well as for defining priority elements for green infrastructure. The mapping of ecosystem services is therefore a powerful tool for maintaining, supporting and facilitating more sustainable landscape management. The Ecosystem Services Assessment of the Basque Country project has carried out this ecosystem services mapping work throughout the Basque Country and has made it available to any interested person or entity on the Basque Government website.
