The Economic Valuation of Tropical Forest Land Use Options: A Manual for Researchers


  • Camille Bann

    () (Cambodia)


This manual has been prepared as an aid to researchers in Southeast Asia involved in the economic evaluation of tropical forest land use options. It was developed initially to serve as an aid to Cambodian researchers in the execution of an EEPSEA-financed study of non-timber forest values in Ratanakiri Province, Cambodia. (The report resulting from that study is available as an EEPSEA Research Report.) The aim of the manual is to provide non-specialists with a basic theoretical background to economic valuation of the environment and with a practical methodology for an economic evaluation of alternative tropical forest land uses.
