About this book

The true economic value of protected areas is often difficult to measure, and short term economic gains can appear more attractive than the long-term benefits of conservation. This book provides a methodology for assigning monetary values to nature, and gives examples of case studies in Thailand and other developing nations in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa.
