December 19, 2012 | Posted by AB NAWMP

On November 6, 2012, 68 wetland professionals participated in a forum to discuss the topic Understanding Wetland Benefits: Assessment and Valuation.

Eight speakers described why assessment and valuation of wetland benefits is important, and presented perspectives on biophysical, economic and social components of the assessment and valuation process.

Participants then explored these concepts in three separate small group sessions, considering a different question in each session. A short report summarizes the ideas and actions generated throughout the day, for participants and others to use in their respective fields of work on wetlands in Alberta.
