Valuation of Coastal and Marine Ecosystem Services in India: Macro Assessment

Published By: Madras School of Economics, MSE on eSS | Published Date: July , 2016

The aim of this study is to value, in monetary units, coastal and marine ecosystem services in India. The reasons for doing so are two–fold: i) the destruction and degradation of coastal ecosystems necessitates the accounting for ecosystem service losses in terms of the benefits foregone to human beings, such that appropriate decisions and actions regarding the extent to which coastal ecosystems are to be conserved may be taken; and ii) very few studies exist in the literature that have comprehensively valued coastal and marine ecosystem services in India.
