FAO Releases Training Manual on How to Put a Price on Ecosystem Services of Forests


Addressing one of the main challenges of valuing green assets, this training manual introduces methods, tools and software to value forest ecosystem services.

It offers a serious economic approach to valuing forests and their services, explaining cost-benefit  analysis and market behaviour.

The manual includes a repository of case studies in Thailand, Hawaii and Bangladesh.

Planners and project managers learn to apply economic theory through in-depth modules on the main services that forest provide—think of green infrastructure, provisioning of resources, coastal protection and carbon sequestration, cultural services and tourism.
