Natural Capital 101

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Apr 5, 2017 Posted in Past webinars

Although the live course is now over the Natural Capital MOOC is still available for viewing course material. You will need to sign in to Stanford Online for this and then click on the course page

Split into four modules, Natural Capital 101 (NC101) first introduces the concepts of natural capital and ecosystem services, the stocks and flows of vital benefits flowing from nature to people.

The second module describes InVEST, NatCap’s software tool for mapping, modeling, and valuing ecosystem services. In addition, it provides guidance on project scoping and on matching approaches and tools to a project’s goals, decision context, timeline, capacity, and quality of data available.

Modules 3-4 offer an overview of the skills needed to use InVEST models, including recommendations for how to effectively summarize and communicate model outputs to stakeholders and other audiences.
