Reversing the loss and degradation of nature requires fundamental changes of how we live and operate our economies. While the impacts of economic activities on nature are increasingly quantified and understood, this holds much less for the socio-economic consequences of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. sIntESE will synthetize information regarding the contribution of ecosystems to economic activities and develop a framework to model these contributions, building upon recent studies that connected ecosystem services models and economic models.
