Local managers found that their understanding of Ecosystem Services Assessment issues, and the range of perceptions regarding these, was significantly enhanced through the adoption of this approach.

The VALMER project has left a significant legacy, not just in producing a wealth of results and data, but also with regard to improving understanding of Ecosystem Services Assessment by academics, managers and stakeholders alike.
