Impacts, Issues and Strategies for Policy Action

image of People and Biodiversity Policies

The implementation of biodiversity policies will often benefit different groups to a greater or lesser degree. For example, in establishing a property right to facilitate management of a biodiversity-related resource, people who previously had unrestricted use will be adversely affected. Combining analysis and a wealth of case studies, this book offers concepts and tools for addressing distributive issues in biodiversity policy. It will help policy makers put together strategies for anticipating distributive impacts across different groups; and for selecting processes and instruments that manage distributive impacts without compromising conservation and use objectives.

The Distributive Effects of Biodiversity Policies: Dynamic Analysis

Biodiversity policies have an explicit time dimension. The total economic value of biodiversity concept contains some important intertemporal components, such as option values, exploratory values or quasi-option values (Bulte and Withagen, 2006), and bequest values (Pearce and Moran, 1994). These values are conceptually tied to the future in the following ways:  Option values arise from the continued preservation of habitats and ecosystems by allowing conversion decisions to be postponed into the future.
