06.07.2016 Prof. Dr. Katrin Rehdanz (University of Kiel):
A human well-being approach for assessing the value of the natural environment

In many cases society ignores that nature’s services are particularly worthy of protection. This in turn implies that the trade-offs between the use of the goods and services provided by nature and their preservation is not always taken sufficiently into account. Using the EU Biodiversity Strategy  as an example, requiring the member states to assess their ecosystems and the economic value of their ecosystem  services by 2020, the objective of this talk is to present the subjective well-being approach as one approach to measure people’s attitudes towards and preferences for nature’s services. Based on this approach the value of changes in natural land cover are assessed. Results at the NUTS 2 level for European countries  indicate (a) that marginal willingness-to-pay estimates tend to be higher for natural areas that are scarcer, and (b) that a nonlinear relationship between land cover and well-being is preferred to a linear relationship indicating decreasing benefits from individual landscape amenities.
Katrin Rehdanz is associate professor for environmental and resource economics at the University of Kiel associated with the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. She holds a diploma and a PhD in economics from the University of Hamburg. She has a strong background in environmental valuation and environmental-economy modeling. Her main areas of research are environmental and climate policies research, global environmental problems, sustainable development, computable general equilibrium modeling.
