Uptake of the ecosystems approach

The Ecosystems Knowledge Network is conducting a survey to assess the practical uptake of an ecosystems approach within policy and practice in the UK.

The Network is now entering a new phase with support from Defra and the Scottish Government and they are surveying environmental professionals in order to consolidate understanding of the types of activities that are currently developing in the context of an ecosystems approach and where innovation can be found.

The results of the survey will help the Network to continue to provide resources that promote good practice and assess the state of knowledge.

The survey will be open until Friday 7th March, and is for both current and prospective members of the Ecosystems Knowledge Network.  To answer the survey click here.

Ecosystems Knowledge Network have also launched a new website,  It contains resources including links to project profiles across the UK, and the latest tools and guidelines available which will help projects to implement an ecosystems approach.
