Extensive land use changes in forest frontier landscapes affect the supply of ecosystem services (ES), as well as human well-being. This study assesses the trade-offs experienced with respect to 10 locally important ES from land user perspectives using social valuation techniques in the Tanintharyi Region of Myanmar, a forest frontier landscape facing the expansion of oil palm and rubber plantations. The results show that while intact forests provide the most highly valued ES bundle, the conversion to rubber plantations causes fewer negative trade-offs than that to oil palm plantations. The study concludes that, from local perspectives, the impact of ES trade-offs highly depends on access to land and opportunities to adapt to change. View this paper
