1. The survey of natural capital in Latvia will collect new information about the natural resources (habitats of EU importance) in the country as well as their condition and quantity.

2. In many cases, landowners will not have to spend their own money for an expert's report to be able to apply for support/compensation payments, or to receive building permits or technical specifications.

3. The activities that will take place during the project will help reduce the administrative burden and time spent for the preparation and issuing of various permits, as the data input into the data management system 'Ozols' will be integrated with other government information systems, e.g. the united geospacial information portal www.geolatvia.lv. With the information available in these databases it will be possible to plan entrepreneurial activities more intentionally with the distribution of endangered species and habitats in mind.

4. The data collected during the project will help balance the development of nature conservation and the national economy much more effectively. It will also help us recognise the distinctive character of certain areas, and will support territorial planning efforts and the resulting economic gains.
