NEWFOREX: Challenges of implementing the valuation of forest externalities

Can we contribute to the increase of societies' welfare by developing new ways to enhance the provision of such forest goods and services? This and similar questions are the focus of the NEWFOREX project (New Ways to Value and Market Forest Externalities). In their second project meeting in Barcelona, NEWFOREX partners discussed the progress on the preparation of background information for the development of valuation questionnaires. These will be applied for the valuation of main forest externalities in selected case study areas.
