Valuing New South Wales Rivers using benefit transfer

Mark Morrison, Jeff Bennett

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Benefit transfer is the practice of estimating economic values at a target site by utilizing the results of existing studies for different sites. The focus of this new book is to assess the validity and accuracy of benefit transfer using choice modeling in contrast to the traditional focus of transferring results from contingent valuation and travel cost models. The book includes a simple guide to using choice modeling results in a benefit transfer process, an overview of the theoretical issues involved and a number of case studies from Australia, the USA, New Zealand, the UK and Finland
