Various economical methods are available for the monetary assessment of the effects of environmentally induced diseases as well as the resulting deaths. The aim of the project was to examine the suitability of these methods for the monetary valuation of the health effects of environmental pollution in Germany. The core features of selected methods were identified, the main strengths and weaknesses were summarized, and their suitability for use within health economic analyses was assessed. This report also serves as a basis for the development of concrete monetary valuations of environmental burdens of disease, which is illustrated by three case studies.
