MoRST is performing an evaluation of the funds invested in environmental research. The two case studies discussed in this paper
contribute to the ongoing decision-making about this investment. Substantial funds have been invested in both research
programmes identified. Because the main benefits associated with research output are environmental, they are difficult to value
monetarily. Preliminary analysis suggests that at a discount rate of 6%, annual future benefit flows of $7 - $10 million will justify
the water quality/clarity research. The expenditure on possum biocontrol will be justified if the research generates an annual future
benefit flow of $20 million.

Valuing protection of the Great Barrier Reef with choice modelling by management policy options
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Rolfe,
John; Windle,
In this paper the results of a choice modelling experiment to value increased protection of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is
reported. There are very few previous studies that identify protection values for the Great Barrier Reef, making it difficult to
evaluate whether the community benefits from future additional protection measures are larger than the costs involved. The
valuation experiment that has been conducted is novel in two important ways. First, different management policies to increase
protection have been included as labels in the choice experiment to test if the mechanisms to achieve improvements are important
to respondents. Second, the level of certainty associated with predicted reef health has been included as an attribute in the...

This research examines a spatially explicit allocation of habitat restoration activities in an Oregon watershed to meet water
temperature targets for the benefit of endangered salmonid fish species. Integrating hydrological, biological and economic models,
a series of optimization problems are investigated for different policy targets including temperature reductions and enhanced fish
populations. Results indicated that the heterogeneous nature of riparian conditions and stream morphology needs to be considered
if restoration activities are to be allocated efficiently in a watershed. We also found that it is less costly to implement restoration
activities in tributaries if the objective is to maximize stream length where water temperatures decrease by a...
