  • Description:
    Ecosystem Services Valuation in the Indiana Coastal Zone introduces this concept to coastal zone managers, policymakers, and valuation practitioners. Ecosystem services valuation allows decision makers to better address resource management challenges and communicate how actions can negatively or positively affect the public. This primer introduces ecosystem service valuation to coastal zone managers, policymakers, and planners. Ecosystem services valuation allows decision makers to better address resource management challenges and communicate how actions can impact or benefit the public. Ecosystem service valuation begins with a conceptual model illustrating how a human action (management decision, policy change, restoration project) ultimately results in a change in human well-​being. The logic of why it is important to conduct an ecosystem services valuation is: 1. Ecosystems provide a baseline level of ecosystem services to people. 2. Human actions impact an ecosystem’s condition. 3. An ecosystem’s condition is linked to the ecosystem services provided to humans. 4. Changes in ecosystem condition can therefore result in a change in ecosystem services provided by the ecosystem. 5. Changes in ecosystem services impact human well-​being. 6. Changes in human well-being can be measured using valuation methods. This primer includes three case studies and steps to accomplish concepts.
