Description

Canada's ecosystems and the biological diversity they support are natural assets which make significant contributions to the national economy. Functional ecosystems represent natural capital upon which our economy depends for the production of many goods and services. Being highly productive, biologically rich and providing many ecological services, wetlands are particularly important to both biodiversity and the economy. Methods to measure the sociological and economic benefits of wetlands show promise and are beginning to demonstrate the returns on investment from actions to sustain wetlands and the benefits that may be lost if they are degraded. This fact sheet is intended to help planners, policy makers and conservationists better understand the economic valuation of wetlands including the tools and methods used to value these natural features.
