PUBLICATIONS: UNEP’s Ecosystem Services Economics Working Papers

UNEP’s Ecosystem Services Economics Working Papers are available online.

The UNEP Ecosystem Management sub-program helps countries use the ecosystem approach to enhance human well-being and adapt to challenges of climate change. We are pleased to provide a forum for disseminating working papers reflecting the broad range of research activities on economics of ecosystem services. Papers in this series are not formal publications of UNEP. They are circulated to encourage thought and discussion and make results of some ecosystem services economics related research available to other economists, scientists and policy makers working in this area.

The working papers are available for download here. A list of titles is below.
