Valuing Ecosystem Services
Decision-makers need to know economic values in order to manage natural capital, or ecosystem goods and services (NRC 2004). Resources to implement and improve socio-economic valuation of both market and non-market ecosystem goods and services include:
- An Ecosystem Services Approach to Assessing the Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spil in the Gulf of Mexico (National Academy of Sciences, Ocean Studies Board, 2013)
- Economics: National Ocean Watch (NOAA Coastal Services Center on-line resource)
- Blue Value searchable database of ecosystem valuation information (formerly GECOSERV)
