A Green Vision for Sumatra

This case study highlights a real-world example of using InVEST scenarios to inform decisions about land use. In this example, scenarios were developed, ecosystem service impacts were assessed, and the results were used to make sound policy decisions.

InVEST was used to map the amount of high-quality wildlife habitat, carbon storage and sequestration, annual water yield, erosion control, and water purification (for both nitrogen and phosphorus) provided by the two scenarios and the 2008 baseline. Maps were developed showing the difference in ecosystem services between the two scenarios, and between each scenario and 2008
