Last year, the National Association of Conservation Districts commissioned a study, “Conservation Benefits, Putting Value Where it Belongs.”
Efforts to attach economic value to conservation are focusing new attention on the full range of costs and benefits associated with conservation work done across the country.
The 35-page report serves as a survey of efforts to focus on the economic value of conservation practices and systems on America’s private lands. The study focuses on several ecosystem services, including source water.
The full report, “Conservation Benefits: Putting Value Where It Belongs,” is available on the Reports section of NACD’s web site or by clicking here.
