An ecosystems approach is a holistic and inclusive approach to looking after the natural environment, and this new website explains the terms and what an ecosystem approach means in practice.

The EKN website also provides good practice examples of applying the approach in a range of different situations; interactive discussion forums so members can share ideas, experiences and problems; and a suite if tool and guidelines to applying an ecosystems approach for anyone to use.

The EKN is free to join, you just need to register as a member via the website, and get started.
