Valuation of Marine Ecosystem Services: A GAP Analysis

This report draws on a desktop study of published articles and material on valuation of marine ecosystem services commissioned by WCMC in July 2007. A literature review was conducted by Federico Bernasconi at the UNEP-WCMC center, and as consequence the review results were summarized in a database presenting the different methodologies that are applied to attribute a monetary value to the ecological services provided by the various elements that belong to those ecosystems. This database forms the basis for the results in Chapters 1 and 2 of this report.
