Biodiversity and Nature Index

This project is financed by the Research Council of Norway under the Norwegian environmental research towards 2015 (MILJO2015). Period: 1/1 2010-12/31 2012

The project is managed by Statistics Norway. Our contribution will be to study how government transfers in combination with regulations can succeed in achieving specific targets for biodiversity in open lowland expressed by a future value of the Nature Index for that habitat. This will be discussed in relation to the value of open lowland and the ecosystem services provided.
