The Facility for Investment Ready Nature in Scotland (FIRNS)

Kaly Group, the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and the James Hutton Institute have investigated how to establish a market in marine natural capital in Scotland in a way that includes and supports local communities.

To achieve this goal, they have been awarded £100,000 from Nature Scot and National heritage Lottery Fund under the new Facility for Investment Ready Nature in Scotland (FIRNS) grant scheme.

The documents attached refer to the analysis carried out to map key stakeholders in shaping the future governance of marine natural capital markets, and explore ideas about what people, stakeholders and coastal communities think about environmental markets, emerging from several activities that range from community outreach, stakeholders’ workshop, interviews, and questionnaire survey.
