The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB)

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference book

Abstract

TEEB is a recent initiative that draws attention to the economic benefits of biodiversity globally. Its objective is to highlight the cost of the loss and degradation of biodiversity, including species and ecosystems. The initiative provides information that can help decision-makers recognize and demonstrate the values of biodiversity and support procedures to incorporate these values into decision-making. A report on water and wetlands identified gaps and inconsistencies in knowledge about the economics of water and wetlands as a base for further investigations.
