Valuing Ecosystem Services from Farms and Forests
The Valuation of Ecosystem Services Available from Farms and Forests
Professor Emeritus of Economics and Environmental Management
This webinar will review the guiding principles for valuing social benefits of conservation practices and/or policies. The project engaged three interdisciplinary teams with experience working on issues of water quality, forests and carbon sequestration and pollinator habitat for the purpose of developing reliable and consistent approaches for assessing monetary and non-monetary benefits of national conservation programs. The webinar will feature the project Co-Chairs, who will be available to answer questions about the synthesis paper and reports that will be released earlier in the week. All those who sign up for the webinar will also receive the release containing the papers.
