THE ECONOMIC VALUE OF BIODIVERSITY pdf

30 nov 2011

-

Villa Fabri, Trevi (PG), Italy

Measuring the economic value of biodiversity is essential to make tangible the relevance of the protection of this important resource, but also to identify conservation measures and tools, to enable appropriate incentives, to include the value of biological resources into national accounting systems, to establish the basis for any discussion on sharing of benefits arising from this resource. In many policy documents on the protection of biodiversity the quantification of its economic value in order to make more effective its conservation is a priority. Economic valuation of biodiversity was included in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 1992. The CBD identifies five levels of biodiversity (ecosystem, species, genetics, landscape, cultural) each of which may be subject to economic
evaluation. Article 14 of the CBD plans to adopt appropriate procedures to assess the environmental impacts of projects, programs and policies likely to have significant adverse effects on biological diversity. The most recent contribution to the economic valuation of biodiversity is the study “The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity” (TEEB) which has set the goal of attracting attention to the overall economic benefits of biodiversity and the costs arising from the loss of this resource and degradation of ecosystems. The study has produced five reports, of which four for decision-makers (Policymakers, Local and Regional Policy, Business,
Citizens), presented at the COP 10 held in October 2010 in Japan.
This conference aims to clarify the state of the art at international level of the methodological and operational aspects of the economic valuation of biodiversity, as well as to clarify the links between new tools for biodiversity conservation and maintenance of the value of this important resource. Particular emphasis is given to the need for quality and updated data, with effective and efficient monitoring systems as a basis for any subsequent evaluation activity.
