Economic Data Needed for EBM
Presentation on Economic Data Needed for EBM by Linwood Pendleton of Duke University (October 28, 2010). EBM has the potential to substantially improve human welfare, especially through the contribution of ecosystem services to economic values and activities. Many EBM practitioners recognize the need to better understand the economic components of their ecosystem. More and more EBM efforts include the collection and analysis of economic data. Determining what economic information to collect and how to collect it remains a challenge. In this webinar, we examine different types of economic information, research, analysis, and modeling that should prove useful for better EBM. The uses and limitations of different types of economic data are considered. We also delve into the use and development of economic indicators for EBM monitoring and evaluation.
