An accurate environmental valuation can be a useful tool to support habitat conservation policies. Quantifying the economic value associated with the protection of biological resources can help to prevent the deterioration of nature. The valuation of natural and environmental resources is just an attempt to put monetary values on environmental goods and natural resources. This way, any economic valuation must refer to the change in a stock and not to the intrinsic value of the environmental asset, i.e., it is not a question regarding the true value of biodiversity, ecosystems, or environment but of valuing changes and comparing them with their alternatives.
This Special Issue seeks research papers on various aspects of valuation of environmental assets. Especially, we encourage the submission of interdisciplinary works and multi-country collaborative research. We welcome original research papers using different valuation approaches, as well as systematic reviews of appraisal techniques.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following: market-based methods for valuing the environment, nonmarket valuation methods, multi-criteria decision-making techniques, hedonic property pricing, travel cost method, contingent valuation, choice modelling, etc.
