Nature Valuation and Financing Network

HOORC researcher Ketlhatlogile Mosepele has alerted us to the Nature Valuation and Financing Network website, a source of information about valuation of the goods and services provided by ecosystems. The aim of the network is to stimulate development and exchange of practical tools for valuation to support economic development decision-making. The site offers a publication database that allows users to both download and upload information, a case study database, and discussion platforms, all linked to the themes of the network:

Valuation Methods & Guidelines
Financing Ecosystem Services
Application of Valuation in Decision Making
Ecosystem Services & Sustainable Management.
