FLOWS OF ECOSYSTEM INPUTS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Like natural resources, ecosystem inputs flow from the environment to the economy. The largest and most obvious flows are from the national environment to the national economy. Other flows include the consumption of ecosystem inputs by resident producers operating outside their national territory, for example international transport carriers and tourists.
