The project “Implementing the ecosystem services concept at the municipal level” (ECOSIMP, 2013-2016) studies the conditions for integrating the concept and approach of ecosystem services into municipal planning and decision-making. The project is performed in close cooperation with representatives from the seven municipalities Kristianstad, Simrishamn, Trelleborg, Malmö, Lomma, Helsingborg and Båstad in the province Skåne, Region Skåne and Skåne Association of Local Authorities. The project includes studies of how municipality officials and politicians view the opportunities and obstacles to implement the concept, as well as studies of historical and present planning and decision cases involving aspects of ecosystem services. The final report from the project will be delivered at the end of 2016.
