Demystifying Economic Valuation Paper

CSERGE staff contributed to the Demystifying Economic Valuation paper, published by the Valuing Nature Network.

The paper provides a summary of principles to help communication with research disciplines and users of economic value evidence.

The paper covers the following topics:

  • Why economic valuation?
  • What is economic valuation?
  • How do we estimate economic value?
  • Whose values count?
  • How do we use economic values in decision making?
  • But economic values vary! And so they should!

The paper concludes with some suggestions for how to communicate economic value evidence.
