Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Natural Course have commissioned eftec and partners Environmental Finance and Countryscape to develop the first Natural Capital Investment Plan for the city region. The plan will promote investment and delivery of opportunities that protect and enhance Greater Manchester’s natural capital to support a healthy population and economy.
The team will work alongside stakeholders to identify priority areas and a pipeline of investment opportunities that will enhance the value of natural capital assets with a focus on local and national socio-economic priorities. Mechanisms for delivery of one or more pilot innovative financial model(s) will be detailed to ensure the achievement of financial and social objectives. The plan will be delivered in December 2018, with a formal launch event to be confirmed.
