Valuing Ecosystem Services for Conservation/Development
CM | 1.25
Date: Monday, April 15
Activity Code: S559
Room: Columbus Hall G/H
Track: Meaningful Green Track
Costs to provide essential public services like drinking water, wastewater treatment, and stormwater management often strain municipal budgets. One cost-effective alternative is to rely on ecosystem services—or the resources and processes that natural resources can supply. This session will demonstrate how communities are using ecosystem services valuation to distribute scarce resources, protect valuable habitats within redevelopment areas, and manage stormwater volume—achieving environmental quality improvements and economic recovery in the process.
