Rönnebecker Sand

Impact on ecosystem services

The measure ‘Shallow water area Rönnebecker Sand’ in the freshwater zone of the Weser estuary was about the creation of estuarine habitats by transforming adjacent land into marshland as well as subtidal moderately deep habitat connected with a high change in the habitat quality (Figure 6). From the ecosystem services (ES) assessment, it is concluded that this measure generates overall a positive expected impact for many ES, mainly for ‘biodiversity’ and some regulating services (erosion and sedimentation regulation by water bodies, water quality regulation: reduction of excess loads coming from the catchment). The expected impact on the development targets (‘biodiversity’) is very positive. The expected impact for the different beneficiary groups is overall positive, with a positive to very positive expected impact for indirect and future use and for local and regional use (Table 1).
