Understanding impacts and dependencies on natural capital requires us to collect data about the current status and health of ecosystems. We need to understand their state, how they are functioning and what pressures are on them in order to make a useful assessment of the condition of natural capital assets. Such data can be collected at different scales and to varying degrees of detail. Knowing what data to collect, how to collect and it and how then to process and present it in a way which is meaningful to decision making is critical for both businesses and governments. With a plethora of research ongoing and different methodologies emerging it can be tricky knowing what to focus on.
