The Cost of Nature Policies Tool (IKN) calculates the annual costs of the national ecological network under various scenarios. The tool is modularly constructed and in essence consists of several cost tables and a computational model. The purpose of the current report is to consolidate the model documentation and provide a quality assurance assessment. It contains a theoretical framework, a technical description of the computational model and cost tables, and a description of the operation of the model and of the data used. The quality of the calculations was evaluated by means of validation, verification, and sensitivity and uncertainty analyses of the model.
