Over the last few weeks, we have identified ecosystem services and their marketable and non-marketable value. From the perspective of a cost-benefit-analysis, we have described the "inaction" case, a.k.a. business-as-usual.
We've also developed scenarios to eventually prevent land degradation, or 'upgrade' the current status of land, while improving the livelihood of people. Furthermore, we have looked at the tools provided by economists and have identified the ones suitable for various land valuation. This week, we will put a valuation method into practice by designing a research plan.
