Protecting and Investing in Natural Capital in Asia and the Pacific: Public Awareness and Demand Reduction Economic Valuation Report

Consultants' Reports | April 2021

This report is a contribution to the literature on economic valuation of natural resources, specifically marine turtles (pawikan) and Blue-naped parrots (pikoy). The valuation framework used in the calculations was adopted from The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) of UNEP. The economic values of these two taxonomic groups were categorized into three components, namely: direct use value, indirect use value, and non-use value (which in this case was limited to existence value)

Consultants' reports describe activities by a consultant or group of consultants related to preparing a technical assistance project.
