Guidebook on Ecosystem Valuation for Decision Making

The World Resources Institute have released a guidebook, Coastal Capital: Ecosystem Valuation for Decision Making in the Caribbean.  Although this report focuses on Caribbean locations, the methods used are useful for economic valuation practitioners—both economists and non-economists—who want to conduct economic valuation of coastal ecosystems to inform decision making.  

They show not only how to conduct a sound analysis, but also how to explicitly link the valuation to a policy question, identify and engage stakeholders, communicate strategically, and to report findings transparently.  To read more about the guidebook, click here.  To download the guidebook, click here.  ​
