nature’s values

The Ecosystem Valuation Toolkit is the world’s first comprehensive collection of online tools and resources for planners, watershed managers, forest owners, natural resource agencies, scholars and businesses to research and communicate the value of nature’s capital assets.

Nature provides a wide array of market and non-market benefits to society, ranging from recreational and scenic qualities, to extractive uses. Indeed, our economy is integrally dependent on natural resources for everything we produce and consume – even the very air we breathe.
