Natural Capital Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem

Don't have an account? This chapter outlines the major challenges in taking an approach to decision-making that integrates ecosystem services, and presents a new spatially explicit modelling tool — called InVEST Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Trade-offs — that takes critical steps towards addressing these challenges. It then incorporates information on demand for services, and generates estimates of the production of services in biophysical and economic terms. This scenario-driven tool provides outputs in biophysical or monetary terms applicable to everyday decisions. Finally, to ensure practicality, InVEST is modular, with both simple models that can be used in data- or time-constrained situations and also complex models which can be used when data and time are ample.

Ricketts , Gretchen C. It concluded that recent trends in ecosystem change threatened human wellbeing due to declining ecosystem services. This bleak prophecy has galvanized conservation organizations, ecologists, and economists to work toward rigorous valuations of ecosystem services at a spatial scale and with a resolution that can inform public policy. The editors have assembled the world's leading scientists in the fields of conservation, policy analysis, and resource economics to provide the most intensive and best technical analyses of ecosystem services to date. A key idea that guides the science is that the modelling and valuation approaches being developed should use data that are readily available around the world. In addition, the book documents a toolbox of ecosystem service mapping, modeling, and valuation models that both The Nature Conservancy and the World Wide Fund for Nature WWF are beginning to apply around the world as they transform conservation from a biodiversity only to a people and ecosystem services agenda. The book addresses land, freshwater, and marine systems at a variety of spatial scales and includes discussion of how to treat both climate change and cultural values when examining tradeoffs among ecosystem services.

Да, Грег Хейл противный и наглый, но он же не предатель. Зная, чем грозит агентству Цифровая крепость, не мог же он участвовать в заговоре по ее созданию. И все же Сьюзан понимала, что остановить Хейла могут только его представления о чести и честности.

 Что? - Сьюзан встала, глаза ее сверкали. Стратмор подавил желание встать с ней. Он многое знал об искусстве ведения переговоров: тот, кто обладает властью, должен спокойно сидеть и не вскакивать с места.
