Brief description of the data offering

ENCORE (Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure) is a tool to help users better understand and visualise the impact of environmental change on the economy. By focusing on the goods and services that nature provides to enable economic production, it guides users in understanding how businesses across all sectors of the economy potentially depend and impact on nature, and how these potentially dependencies and impacts might represent a business risk.

Where and how do you source your data?

To assess the probability of disruption risk users also require location-specific data on the current state of natural capital assets and the drivers of environmental change that affect them. Inventories of all available data relevant to natural capital assets and drivers of environmental change at a global level were compiled. Data sources were gathered from a combination of general internet searches, scientific literature reviews, and previous UNEP-WCMC projects using key words. International and national organisations, and authors of scientific publications were contacted for further information where necessary.

What is the cost for your data offering?

None.
