Making legal use of the valuation of nature

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

The recognition of ecosystem services and their value creates the opportunity for new approaches to conserving these services and the benefits they provide. There are considerable challenges in translating these ideas into enduring and enforceable legal mechanisms and this chapter explores how new legal rights and relationships might be used to limit and reverse the degradation of biodiversity that threatens us all.
