Technical annex – Natural Capital in the Second National Infrastructure Assessment – NIC

Must read

Economic infrastructure can contribute positively to natural capital, accelerating background trends where these are improving, and slowing or in some cases reversing trends that are worsening. The Second National Infrastructure Assessment includes a range of recommendations to ensure this happens, based on a systematic assessment of the impacts of economic infrastructure on natural capital.

This annex provides a systematic analysis of the impacts of the Assessment’s recommendations on natural capital through quantitatively and qualitatively exploring changes to air quality, biodiversity and water quality both due to background trends and the Commission’s own recommendations.
