This report is a natural capital account developed for Greater Manchester and its 10 districts.

It aims to interpret and calculate the social and economic benefits and services provided by the city-region’s natural capital assets. This is important as it helps us to understand the baseline value of Greater Manchester’s natural capital, so we know what we currently have in order to successfully monitor and the benefits over time. This will then help us improve and enhance our natural areas for everyone’s benefit now and in the future.
