The importance of land cover and their benefits for human well-being in Lithuania.

Welcome to our survey,

The aim of this survey is to identify landscape's goods, services and values that are important
for human well-being. Goods, services and values are benefits that we get from nature. 

Ecosystem services are the many and varied benefits that humans freely gain from the natural environment and from properly-functioning ecosystems. Such ecosystems include agriculture, forests, grasslands, aquatic and marine ecosystems.

This survey will take approximatly 10 minutes.

This survey is part of the FunGILT project funded by LMT (Project number P-MIP-17-210)
