Greater Manchester Natural Capital User Guide

The User Guide gives an overview with links to the range of natural capital tools available, with step by step instructions on how to use them. Short case studies provide examples of how people have used the tools, and a ‘frequently asked questions’ section helps to address some of the barriers users have met in the past. The Greater Manchester Natural Capital User Guide is designed as a ‘one stop shop’ that will help you to: • Deepen your knowledge about the value of Greater Manchester’s natural capital • Understand and explain the wide range of ecosystem services that the natural environment provides • Develop environmental programmes, projects and polices • Examine how developments can deliver biodiversity and environmental net gain • Provide evidence for the local planning process
