Work Package 3a: Economic values of ecosystem services
Minimize

Back

Why:

Financial austerity and the need to use resources efficiently mean that decision makers need to target policies to areas where they are most effective. However, such targeting needs to take into account that not all of the benefits and costs of a policy will be reflected in market values. WP3a addresses these combined concerns of resource efficiency, targeting and both market and non-market values so as to improve decision making

What:

Aim: To conduct economic analysis of the value of ecosystem service change to the UK, examining the trade-offs between selected ecosystem services and their values arising from alternative land-uses

Summary: The research seeks to link policy, market forces, spatial variation in the physical environment, and climate change, to land-use. It will allow policy-makers to examine the impact of a variety of changes in land-use policy while accounting for the ongoing effects of the other drivers listed above. The analysis will then link changes in land-use to their impacts upon:

Food production and its value

Farm income

Water Quality

Multi-purpose woodland

Greenhouse gas balance

Recreation

Habitat and biodiversity

Where possible, the project will provide comparable economic measures of these impacts. In so doing, the research aims to provide the UK policy community with a sophisticated and policy-relevant analysis concerning the diversity of effects arising from land-use change.
