Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’

Impact on ecosystem services

  • From the ES assessment it is concluded that this measure generates overall a positive expected impact for many ES, however also a slightly negative impact is expected for one ES.
    • Very positive expected impact:
      • “biodiversity”
      • Some regulating services: Water quality regulation: reduction of excess loads coming from the catchment; Climate regulation: Carbon sequestration and burial; Regulation extreme events or disturbance: Flood water storage
    • Slightly negative expected impact:
      • Water quantity regulation: dissipation of tidal and river energy
  • The expected impact on the development targets (“Biodiversity”) is very positive.
  • The expected impact for the different beneficiary groups is overall very positive, with a positive to very positive expected impact for indirect and future use and for local use.

The screening of the ecosystem services (ESS) that were effected by the measure `Reed settlement at the location “Haken”` showed the additional benefits that were achieved with the implementation of this stabilization measure.
