Conference Explores “Valuing” Environmental Resources
Economists from California, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, and Florida will
gather in Chico on Friday, April 25, for a conference on the economic
valuing of environmental resources.
Environmental economists will present case studies of resources in Northern
California and the Pacific Northwest. The content is especially relevant
to residents and businesses in these areas, although the methodology is
applicable to the valuation of resources anywhere.
Presentations will address a range of environmental topics, including
endangered species, fisheries, invasive species, and shipment of nuclear
wastes. The research presented will employ various valuation methods,
including contingent valuation, travel cost, and economic-ecological modeling.
Experts from the California State University system, the University of
California, and universities in Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, and Florida will
be speakers and panelists. See page 3 for a list of speakers.
