ECONOMIC LINKAGES BETWEEN COASTAL WETLANDS AND HABITAT/SPECIES
PROTECTION: A REVIEW OF VALUE ESTIMATES REPORTED IN THE PUBLISHED
LITERATURE

Autores: Kazmierczak,
Richard F., Jr.
This manuscript summarizes a total of 8 peer-reviewed studies, published from 1975 to 2001, reporting 24 separate estimates for
the disaggregate2 value of habitat and species protection services provided by coastal and non-coastal wetlands. Estimates varied
within a single order of magnitude and were fairly tightly bounded. Considering only coastal zone wetlands across all study
categories, the value of habitat and species protection ranged from $168.96/acre/year to $403.16/acre/year, with a mean and
median of $249.44/acre/year and $253.47/acre/year, respectively.
By comparison, reported estimates of willingness-to-pay
(WTP) values for wetland habitat and species protection services ranged from a low of $30.12 to $434.67, with a mean and
median of $211.59...

The Moore Catchment, which lies to the north of Perth, WA, suffers from a number of problems related to water management.
Farmers want to manage salinity and waterlogging problems through the use of drains, but this has negative off-farm impacts on
both the environment and flood risk. Views on responsibilities for managing water within the catchment differ between farmers,
local communities and government agencies. This paper reports the results from surveys of attitudes towards catchment
management, for two community groups: residents of Perth and residents of rural towns in the catchment. A parallel study of
farmers has been undertaken but is not reported here. These surveys elicited general attitudes towards the environment and
agriculture, and views on...

BOTSWANA'S APPROACH TO DROUGHT: HOW DISASTER RELIEF CAN BE
DEVELOPMENTAL
Provedor de dados: 31

Joe.
Integrating disaster relief and development is not a new concept. Addressing underlying problems that have made a society
susceptible to disaster have their origins dating back to the Indian Famine Relief Codes of the 1860's. Today, this is a popular
notion among many people involved with emergency response. Still, there are relatively few instances where disaster relief has
emphasized both long and short term needs - cases from which other countries and international organizations can learn. The
problem of not having a successful example from which to model relief responses has often been cited as creating a serious barrier
to implementing successful relief-development responses during recent famines (Cutler and Stephenson, RDI, Garvelink). The
need for...
