Article
Full-text available
Mainstreaming ecosystem services into policy and decision making is dependent on the availability of spatially explicit information on the state and trends of ecosystems and their services. In particular, the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 addresses the need to account for ecosystem services through biophysical mapping and valuation. This paper...

Mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services An analytical framework for ecosystem assessments under action 5 of the EU biodiversity strategy to 2020 : discussion paper – final, April 2013 Action 5 of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 calls Member States to map and assess the state of ecosystems and their services in their national t...
Article
Full-text available
This paper investigates spatial determinants of recreational ecosystem service values by combining Geographic Information System (GIS) and meta-analysis, and by presenting the first review on meta-analysis studies in this field. Using meta-analytic value transfer, we map the spatial distribution of recreational values across Europe. By combining me...
Article
Full-text available
Recreation is a major ecosystem service and an important co-benefit of nature conservation. The recreational value of National Parks (NPs) can be a strong argument in favour of allocating resources for preserving and creating NPs worldwide. Managing NPs to optimize recreational services can therefore indirectly contribute to nature conservation and...

The importance of measuring the economic impacts of tourism in protected areas The value of protected areas is often hidden from direct view. Once managers understand the number and behaviour of visitors they host, and the revenues and costs they generate, informed decisions on management plans and tourism strategies can be made. Demonstrating th...
Article
Full-text available
Nature visitation is important, both culturally and economically. Given the contribution of nature recreation to multiple societal goals, comprehending determinants of nature visitation is essential to understand the drivers associated with the popularity of nature areas, for example, to inform land-use planning or site management strategies to max...

The Eastern and Southern Africa region covers 24 countries from South Africa in the south to Sudan in the north and four of the six Western Indian Ocean island nations. The region is culturally diverse and extremely rich in biodiversity, with an abundance of spectacular wildlife, and many endemic species of flora and fauna. Considerable effort...

The Ecosystem Services Valuation Database (ESVD) is a follow-up to the “The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity” (TEEB) database which contained over 1,300 data points from 267 case studies on monetary values of ecosystem services across all biomes. The TEEB database had not been updated since 2010 and naturally many gaps exist across biomes,...
Thesis
Full-text available
Spatial assessments and mapping of ecosystem service values has become a widely addressed research issue. It is more and more used to consult land-use and conservation policies as well as landscape planning. Nevertheless, a variety of methods is used for ecosystem service value mapping, which lead to maps with a broad range of quality and accuracy....
Chapter
Full-text available
The chapter provides a brief assessment of the current situation and outlook for biodiversity and protected areas in Africa. It also includes a summary of key challenges and opportunities, including ongoing initiatives such as the Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) and the Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management Programme (BIOPAMA),...
Article
Nature recreation and tourism is a substantial ecosystem service of Europe's countryside that has a substantial economic value and contributes considerably to income and employment of local communities. Highlighting the recreational value and economic contribution of nature areas can be used as a strong argument for the funding of protected and rec...
Technical Report
This report details the progress during the final period August 2015-December 2016 by the Joint Research Centre in executing the “Protected Areas Component” of the BIOPAMA project. This is the 5 th , and final, year of the project, which began for JRC with the signature of the Administrative Arrangement on 21 July 2011. The authors of this repo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We map recreational visits and the economic value per visit spatially explicit across Europe’s non-urban ecosystems using GIS, meta-analysis and geostatistical modelling techniques. Therefore, we developed a meta-analytic visitor arrival function and a meta-analytic value transfer function by regression analysis. Primary data on the dependent varia...
Chapter
This chapter illustrates the process of mapping ecosystem service values with an application to coral reef recreational values in Southeast Asia . The case study provides an estimate of the value of reef-related recreation foregone, due to the decline in coral reef area in Southeast Asia , under a baseline scenario for the period 2000–2050. This va...
Article
Kotiaho & Moilanen (2015) highlighted what they call a conceptual flaw in our study (Egoh et al. 2014) and some operational flaws. Here, we respond to these.According to Kotiaho & Moilanen (2015), the conceptual flaw is that we supposedly neglect both the magnitude of degradation and the magnitude of improvement of the ecosystem condition expected...
Article
Research on ecosystem services mapping and valuing has increased significantly in recent years. However, compared to provisioning and regulating services, cultural ecosystem services have not yet been fully integrated into operational frameworks. One reason for this is that transdisciplinarity is required to address the issue, since by definition c...

Article
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the European Union have set a target of restoring 15% of degraded ecosystems by 2020 with the aim of conserving biodiversity and enhancing the supply of ecosystem services. This target must be implemented alongside other similar targets aimed at reducing the number of threatened habitat and species a...

Ecosystems are critically important to our well-being and prosperity as they provide us with food, clean air and fresh water and they maintain a livable biosphere. Consequently, it is increasingly considered to be of crucial importance that ecosystem services be included in decision making for policies that affect the use or the state of natural re...

Article
Mapping of ecosystem services’ (ESS) values means valuing ESS in monetary terms across a relatively large geographical area and assessing how values vary across space. Thereby, mapping of ESS values reveals additional information as compared to traditional site-specific ESS valuation, which is beneficial for designing land use policies for maintain...

The Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) is a set of web services and applications that can be used primarily to assess, monitor, report and possibly forecast the state of and the pressure on protected areas at multiple scales. The data, indicators, maps and tools provided by the DOPA are relevant to a number of end-users including policy makers, funding agencies, protected area agencies and managers, researchers and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The information can be used , for example, to support spatial planning, resource allocation, protected area development and management, and national and international reporting. Using global reference datasets, the DOPA supports global assessments but also provides a broad range of consistent and comparable indicators at country, ecoregion and protected area level. For more information please visit http://dopa.jrc.ec.europa.eu/ and check out some of our main products: eConservation (http://econservation.jrc.ec.europa.eu/agreementpage) and the DOPA Explorer (http://dopa-explorer.jrc.ec.europa.eu/dopa_explorer/).
Project
The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management Programme (BIOPAMA) aims to address threats to biodiversity in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, while reducing poverty in communities in and around protected areas. Specifically, the programme will enhance existing institutions and networks by making the best available science and knowledge available for building capacity to improve policies and better decision-making on biodiversity conservation, protected areas management and access and benefit sharing. Well designed and effectively managed systems of protected areas are a vital tool for biodiversity conservation and for maintaining ecosystem services. In some cases, they may also provide opportunities for enhancing the livelihoods of local communities, thus having a possible role to play in reducing poverty.
