Abstract

This paper aims at building an analytical economic framework to address the functioning of an ecosystem using a functional approach of critical natural capital while accounting for the ecological resilience property. This framework is then operationalised to study the sustainability of wetlands ecosystems in the Gironde Estuary region (France).
