Economic valuation methods and CE

Recently I have received many questions from students and reseach fellows on valuation methods and particularly on Choice Experiment. From searching for them, I realize that I myself don’t have proper learning materials for newbies. Thus, I will start collecting them here.

  1. ECON4910 in UiO. I found this particular lecture note worth reading, especially the NOAA on page 14.
  2. NYU Stern’s materials on CE

Conference materials

Conferences, meetings and seminars could produce lots of food for research and their materials are worth giving another look. So I think it is nice to save them here.

IFS- SEARCA Aug2016 on Collaborative Research: Slides, Readings, related links (CCAFS climate, CCAFS climate analog, CCAFS big facts)

EEPSEA Aug2016 on Ecosystem Accounting: Slides, Exercises, Readings, related links (Environmental Accounting in practice – AUS, Phils)

NEU external seminar 07 Dec 2016: Mr Mai Trong Nhuan’s slides on COP 22 and Vietnam

iPFES Final workshop 27 Dec 2016: all materials

Quotes on environment, economics and climate change

I’m saving some quotes for my thesis here:

Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans. Evo Morales

Some people call it global warming; some people call it climate change. What is the difference? Frank Luntz

There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it. David Attenborough

Your life~the way it looks today is a result of your choices…What will you choose today for your tomorrows? – Robert G. Allen

When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money. – Cree Prophecy

If the wars of [the 20th] century were fought over oil,
the wars of the next century will be fought over water.— Ismael Serageldin, former VP for sustainable Development at the World Bank (Newsweek, 1995)

 Water will be to the 21st Century what oil was to the 20th.—Fortune Magazine
