Market and Non-Market Valuation

We are currently analysing the application and selection of methods for market and non-market valuation of the use and non-use values of ecosystem services.

An examination of beneficiaries and losers to quantify trade-offs between individuals and groups in society is currently being performed.

The extent to which ecosystem services are amenable to robust monetary valuation and the role these value estimates play in both Pricing and Payment schemes for ecosystem services are being explored in response to demands set by the development of operational instruments.
