The increasing demands which society places on the natural environment have led us to seek new ways of estimating the monetary costs of environmental degradation to that they can be compared with the benefits of development. This is a comprehensive examination of the major techniques used in cost-benefit analysis and project appraisal to value environmental goods and services. Written by two practitioners in environmental evaluation, the book includes detailed examinations of the theory and practice of a wide range of valuation techniques including contingent valuation, hedonic pricing, choice experiments and travel cost methods. Complementing the theory are case studies on various policy areas such as water quality, recreation, landscape and biodiversity drawn from Europe, the United States and Asia. The book concludes with a provocative review of important contemporary issues as well as suggestions of areas for future research in environmental valuation.
