The valuation of ecosystem services is becoming an increasingly important contribution to policy and decision making at scales from the local to the global.  A global initiative on the economics of ecosystems and biodiversity, which started in 2007, has set a framework for valuing ecosystem services (TEEB 2008).  The valuation of ecosystem services can contribute to better-informed decision-making and market-based mechanisms promoting biodiversity protection (as in the case of schemes for payment for ecosystem services).

This international research symposium was organised by the Ministry of Mahaweli Development and Environment of the Government of Sri Lanka, and focuses on the following four specific areas:

  •         Blue-Green Economy and Environment (Climate Change, Sustainable use of Natural Resources and Blue Green Economy)
  •         Valuation of Forest Ecosystems and their Services
  •         Coastal and Ocean Resources
  •         Community Forestry (special session)

This publication is a compilation of selected research papers received, evaluated and accepted for presentation at the above-mentioned parallel events, which would be running between 18 to 19 October 2016 as a part of the Sri Lanka NEXT ‘Blue-Green Era’ Convention and Exhibition.
