Valuing ecosystem services - how can economics help? Other events...
Professor Ian Bateman, University of East Anglia, will deliver a public lecture examining the application of economic analysis to ecosystem service assessments. Prof. Bateman will discuss methods for valuing changes in the services provided by the natural environment, and how to identify economically optimal implementations of land use policy. Findings highlight the substantial improvements in welfare that can arise from shifting the emphasis of decision making away from a focus upon market priced goods alone towards a broader conception of economic values, and the need to go beyond valuations of ecosystem service flows to consider the sustainability of natural asset stocks.
