Abstract

El principal objetivo de la Directiva Marco del Agua de la Unión Europea es logar un “buen estado†de las aguas europeas para el año 2015 mediante una combinación de diferentes medidas. En este estudio, dos métodos de preferencias declaradas, el método de valoración contingente y el método de ordenación contingente, han sido aplicados para obtener la valoración económica de una hipotética mejora de la calidad del agua de un río. La comparación de las dos metodologías muestra que las valoraciones obtenidas con el método de ordenación contingente son considerablemente mayores que las obtenidas con la valoración contingente. Por último, los valores estimados se agregan para obtener una aproximación cuantitativa a los beneficios sociales derivados de esta mejora ambiental.
