What’s WESWI?

The acronym WESWI represents Waterbody Ecosystem Services Wellbeing Index. WESWI is designed to assist urban collaborative process decision makers weigh the trade-offs between the wellbeing associated with employment, housing and industry contribution to regional value added income, and that associated with the ecosystem services delivered by freshwater and coastal waterbodies impacted by urban development. We examine the use of WESWI in an urban development case study located on the urban fringe of Auckland City. We show how WESWI can used to understand the effects of contrasting urban stormwater management scenarios on the wellbeing associated with ecosystem service provision by an urban stream.
