The Natural Capital Evidence Compendium for Norfolk and Suffolk is a local assessment of the natural assets across the two counties and identifies risks to them, particularly in the context of climate change. It also recommends seven priority themes for action: Water; Land Management; Green House Gases; Carbon Sequestration; Habitats; Bio-security and Resilience.

It was commissioned by Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, and carried out by the University of East Anglia’s School of Environment (published October 2020). Visit the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership website  to download the Compendium.
