The value of Ecosystem services
According to Sweden’s environmental objectives, the value of ecosystem services is to be integrated, where relevant, into decision making in society. As a contribution to achieving this, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Swedish EPA) offers funding for research projects of the order of SEK 2–5 million, spread over two to three years. Funding may be awarded for several projects, within a total budget for this area of SEK 20–25 million. The closing date for applications was 18 June.
