Problems facing the valuation of the total economic value of multifunctional forests
Problemy w szacowaniu całkowitej wartości ekonomicznej lasów wielofunkcyjnych
Abstract: The value of various un-priced (non-wood) outputs or services from forests is becoming an increasingly important component of management planning. Managing natural resources requires timely access to the information on the economic value of the resources. The Contingent Valuation method offers a further advantage: it has the potential to estimate both use as well as non-use values associated with environmental amenities. Applied research in this area will improve our understanding of non-market forest values in WPN. However, a complete revelation of underlying, social preferences for un-priced values remains problematic.
