About

Oppla is a new knowledge marketplace; a place where the latest thinking on ecosystem services, natural capital and nature-based solutions is brought together.

Its purpose is to simplify how we share, obtain and create knowledge to better manage our environment.

Oppla is an open platform that is designed for people with diverse needs and interests - from science, policy and practice; public, private and voluntary sectors; organisations large and small, as well as individuals. All are welcome and have a part to play in our community.
