This study aims to further develop the monetary figures used in the previous Cost of Policy Inaction (COPI) study carried out by Ecologic and its partners in 2008. The numbers used in the previous COPI analysis are here tested, validated, extended and further improved. The results feed into the wider Review on The Economics of Ecosystems & Biodiversity (TEEB).
The previous COPI study provided key ecological and economic insights on the impacts of not halting biodiversity loss. An aggregate global figure was derived equatingRead more
Large-scale environmental valuations are usually accompanied with great methodological difficulties. The aim of this study was to develop guidelines for applying more accurate, less uncertain value transfer using spatial data in a policy-relevant scaling-up approach to large-scale geographical areas. The study results fed into a Technical Report by the European Environment Agency (EEA) that contributes to the wider TEEB initiative.
The transfer of economic values of individual ecosystem services from a particular study site toRead more
At COP-9 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) which took place in Bonn, 19-30 May 2008, countries conducted an in depth review of national efforts to address the threat of invasive alien species under the Convention.
