SWEEP: Putting the Natural Capital Approach into Practice
SWEEP (South West Partnership for Environment and Economic Prosperity) is an ambitious 5-year NERC-funded programme led by the University of Exeter (Prof. Ian Bateman), in partnership with Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the University of Plymouth.
SWEEP brings together academics with forward-thinking stakeholders to co-deliver an integrated, co-designed programme that places Natural Capital at the heart of business and policy-making.
SWEEP aims to be a national exemplar for natural capital-led economic growth, social gains and environmental improvements.
Through the work of our incredible Impact Fellows, this film explores the SWEEP ethos and shows how the natural capital approach is delivered on the ground by helping stakeholders solve challenges in environmental management. Projects span the marine and terrestrial environment, as well as the fields of policy, economics, environment, health & social research.
