Managing natural capital and ecosystem services --improving resource efficiency and ensure resilience Ecosystem Economy (natural capital) (produced capital) goal: ensure goal: improve ecosystem resilience resource efficiency GREEN ECONOMY Human well-being (social and human capital) goal: enhance social equity and fair burden-sharing
Where natural capital is limited, trade-offs betweendifferent ecosystem services and resource uses occur Capitals Global & Natural capital European (i.e. air, water, land, seas, biodiversity) Food Ecosystems Water Produced capital resources resources (i.e. along resources life‐cycle) Social and human capital Human Well‐Being Services & Health Resource needs for consumption (e.g. provisioning services) Energy Material Access and exposure to environment resources resources (e.g. regulating and cultural services) Links between resource uses (e.g. water needed for food production)
Challenges>TINA • Human-being will always needs FOOD, WATER, ENERGY and MATERIALS; we are 7 billion consumers • Loss of global biodiversity is at rates up to 1000 times higher than the historical background rate • 13 million hectares of the world’s forests are cut down annually (Greece size) • Necessity to improve ecological resilience • Traditional GDP does not include the social and human price we pay for side effects of our economic output e.g. dammage to the environment • Need for redesigning our economic models such that we can generate growth and improve the quality of life, while also protecting the interesys of future gnerations (GHB) • The solution has been termed „the green economy” and there is no alternative29/05/2012 4

Polish – Norwegian Cooperation•Cooperation project under EEA and Norway Financial Mechanisms 2004-09: Improving theefficiency of Polish Environmental Inspection based on Norwegian experiences(GIOŚ and Klif)> succesfully completed and undercountry-wide implementation•As a follow-up a new risk based and more effective inspection system in Poland for controland enforcement of environmental legislation>since 2004 3 times more tasks•Partners have mutually benefited from each other and reinforced the ecological vector ofbilateral cooperation•New challenge under EEA Grants „Improving environmental monitoring and inspection: 1)strengthening air quality assessment system based on Norwegian experience and 2)strengthening of technical capacities of inspection through procurement of measurement, lab and IT equipement for a total of 10 million euro.
