Steven King

Environmental Economist | Ecosystem Assessment and Policy Support

Steven is heavily involved with the development of the Centre’s approach to natural capital accounting and formulating proposals to best integrate this approach into national decision-making. He also provides economic input into projects undertaken within the ecosystem assessment programme and elsewhere across the Centre.

Previous experience & expertise

Steven recently completed his doctoral thesis, which comprised non-market valuation of river ecosystem services from improvements in river connectivity. This research was supported by optimization modelling in order to generate the most cost-effective solutions to habitat fragmentation problems. Previous research has also included valuing public access to forests. Prior to this Steven worked for nearly 10 years as a senior and principal consultant in the construction and transport industries, providing advice on contaminated land assessment and pollution abatement.
