WP3 - Valuation of Ecosystem Services

Family in Ageyo-Kofele transect in Ethiopia - WP3WP3 provides information about the economic value communities derive from various ecosystem services, which in turn aids decision making regarding different land use options due to the monetary value involved.

Valuation also enhances understanding of the importance non-market goods and services have in providing and maintaining human welfare.

This work package will identify and characterize the benefits, as well as beneficiaries, of ecosystem services that are necessary in order to understand the impact a changing climate will have on the livelihoods of communities.

The purpose of using a monetary unit in assigning value to these benefits is that it allows people and decision makers to understand more clearly the tradeoffs between alternative and competing uses of a given resource.
