The aim of this book is to provide guidance to policy makers and planners on the potential for economic valuation of wetlands and how such valuation studies should be conducted. Although a number of economic valuation studies of wetlands have been undertaken around the world and economists have developed methodologies for valuing more intangible aspects of the environment, such as amenity or aesthetic factors, no one has synthesised from this literature a common approach to show its overall usefulness to wetland management worldwide. Consequently, this book provides details of the various techniques and examples of wetland valuation studies together with guidance on planning and managing a study and putting the result into a wider decision-making framework.
