The use of environmental compensation is very limited in Swedish coastal areas, although it could contribute to national and global targets for biodiversity. The aim of the ECOCOA project (2018-2021) was to develop tools that can facilitate the offsetting of losses of biodiversity and ecosystem services under human developments. The project was financed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
