Explores the extent to which the challenges facing stated preference environmental valuation can be overcome through mixing methods. This work considers two approaches: mixing methods within conventional stated preference; and then explore the use of group methods within preference construction and forming a social consensus on willingness to pay.
'In an area where feelings often run high, the author has produced a judicious assessment of the challenges to placing a value on environmental "goods" without a clear market value. Thoughtfully written, Redesigning Environmental Valuation draws on research from multiple disciplines, in creating a rigorous, nuanced approach to ensuring that important consequences are not neglected. In so doing, it shows the way toward integrative social sciences.' - Baruch Fischhoff, Carnegie Mellon University, US 'This excellent book will reinvigorate interest in environmental valuation by economists and other social scientists. Its focus is clear - it highlights the challenges that face valuation researchers and describes new and better ways of estimating values for the environment by drawing on methods that have evolved in other disciplines. A must read for all researchers interested in environmental valuation.' - Douglas C. MacMillan, University of Kent, UK
