Natural Capital & Infrastructure Community of Practice

The Natural Capital & Infrastructure Community of Practice (NC&I CoP) focuses on Natural capital, which is the world’s stock of natural resources, including geology, soils, air, water, and all living organisms. Some natural capital assets provide people with free goods and services, often called ecosystem services and Infrastructure – the basic physical and organisational structures and facilities (e.g. buildings, roads, power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise.

Community of Practice (CoP)

Co-chaired by Industry and MOD, the CoP group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or an interest in a topic and who come together to fulfil both individual and group goals.

Communities of practice share best practices creating new knowledge to advance a domain of professional practice. Interaction on an ongoing basis is an important part of this.

The COP relies on face-to-face meetings as well as web-based collaborative environments to communicate, connect and conduct community activities.

Why get involved? 

Ability to understand the direction of travel from within Defence, shape, influence and assist MOD in its future direction for NC&I. Working as part of a team with equally capable and knowledgeable organisations within Defence and the wider community. This is an opportunity for wider industry experience and best practice to be showcased within the Defence environment.
