Benefits Transfer

Transfer studies are the bedrock of practical policy analysis in that only infrequently are practitioners afforded the luxury of conducting original studies. This is no less true in the case of borrowing or transferring WTP values to policy questions involving environmental or related impacts which are the subject of this chapter. Although there are no generally accepted practical transfer protocols, a number of elements of what might constitute best practice have been discussed widely.
