Valuing wetlands: Guidance for valuing the benefits derived from wetland ecosystem services

Ramsar Convention Secretariat

- N/A

Economic valuation of ecosystems is a rapidly developing discipline, and there are now many different methods available for undertaking different aspects and purposes of wetland valuation. In order to assist Contracting Parties in having economic valuation information better available for decision-making on wetlands, Ramsar’s COP8 (Valencia, 2002) requested the STRP to prepare guidance on practical methods for wetland valuation. This report, the preparation of which has been led by Rudolf de Groot and Mishka Stuip of Wageningen University and the Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) in the Netherlands provides this guidance, and updates information on available methodologies from those in Barbier et al. (1997).
