Ecosystem services (ES) are defined as the direct and indirect goods provided by nature to people. For a correct assessment, land management and territory planning, mapping is a crucial exercise. Understand the spatial distribution of supply and demand dimensions is key to identify the areas where they mismatch and overlap and therefore measure the access of people to ES. The objective of this work is to map the supply and demand of provisioning ES in Lithuania and assess the trade-offs among them.
