Economic Valuation of Ecosystem Services

Economic valuation of ecosystem services results in the determination of a value for a particular good or service in a certain context (e.g., of decision making) (Maes et al. 2014; van der Ploeg et al. 2010)1) 2).

The AlpES project does not elaborate an economic evaluation of ecosystem services. It can be a potential next step after a physical assessment of ES. In the pilot regions regional economic valuations or estimation of economic values may be carried out.
