A study associated with the economic valuation of ecosystem services of Stymphalia area implemented within the framework of LIFE-Stymfalia project. An external consultant (University of Patras) undertook the report entitled “Mapping, assessment and economic valuation of ecosystem services, as the basis for decision-making for the integrated management of the Stymphalia lake protected area”. The referred study is related a) to the documentation of the importance of the various supplied or potentially supplied ecosystem services in the protected area, b) to the detection of possible ways that the ecosystem services could support the improvement of the quality of life at the wider area inhabitants. More specifically, the following objectives have been implemented:

1.       Identification, assessment of the biotic and abiotic characteristics and mapping of the ecosystem types in the study area,

2.       Determination, mapping and assessment of the supplied and potentially supplied ecosystem services,

3.       Assessing the demand for the supplied or potentially supplied ecosystem services using a structured questionnaire,

4.       Development of a Decision Support System for the integrated management of Lake Stymphalia,

5.       Economic evaluation of the supplied ecosystem services and establishment of a list of hierarchical prioritization.

Considering the environmental and cultural identity of Lake Stymphalia and in the framework of LIFE-Stymfalia project, the environmental interpretation path “Man and Nature on the Paths of the Time” has been constructed on April 2017. It connects the Environment Museum of Stymphalia with the wetland and the archaeological site. In order to disseminate the knowledge and expertise of designing an environmental path into a protected site, the report entitled “Technical specifications study for the Environmental Interpretation path in Lake Stymphalia” is available here.

So far (April-September 2017) the path has been already visited by around 1.500 individuals, including groups of people, such as schools, scouts, NGO’s, mountaineering clubs, etc.
