The ESVD in practice: Large value for Dutch coastal Systems
Coastal systems provide various ecosystem services, such as waste treatment services and opportunities for recreation and tourism. In our ESVD update for the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV), the total value of coastal systems was $17,301 per hectare per year based on 154 standardized values*. This large monetary value clearly shows that coastal systems are very valuable for societies, that we should bring coastal systems into decision-making and that we should be incentivizing its conservation and restoration.
