Tools for What Trade? Analysing the Utilisation of Economic Instruments and Valuations in Biodiversity Management

Abstract : Efforts to step up the use of economic valuation and economic policy instruments have gradually become a major theme of debate about policies to curb the biodiversity crisis. There seems to remain, however, a considerable gap between the extensive presence of economic tools in policy discourse on biodiversity and the limited level of use of the tools in the field. There is also a great discrepancy between theoretical justifications for the tools and how they actually operate on the ground. There is now a need to focus on the actual use, rather than on the principles, of economic tools for bio- diversity. In this book, we contribute to this change of focus in two ways. On the one hand, we use the literature and interviews to systematically review economic tools for biodiversity to identify the specific issues raised by their use. On the other hand, we lay down a repertoire of theoretical resources that we think are particularly relevant to acquire an in-depth understanding of how these tools actually function in the real world of biodiversity management and policy.
