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.
