Hypothesis: Economic valorisation of natural resources and ecosystem services initiates new compensations schemes

Improvements in assigning monetary value to ecosystem services / Alpine resources makes aware of economic value and society’s dependency of ecosystem services → infor-mation can be used by policy-makers to identify market and policy failures, e.g. dysfunctional incentives/subsidies that contribute to environmental degradation → awareness rais-ing and creating positive incentives, e.g. linking payments to recognizable and valuable services → spatial development could take advantage of these insights and use them for im-proved balancing between natural resource capacities and society’s demands
