The economics of ecosystems and biodiversity (TEEB)
Analysing ecosystem services and environmental pressures is helping to optimise the location of a protected area network in Choiseul, Solomon Islands.
Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) of infrastructure projects like road construction can be strongly influenced if the value of ecosystem services is taken into account. CBA can provide guidance for decision makers and the general public on the costs and efficiency of choices related to the implementation of such projects.
