Albemarle-Pamlico Watershed Economic Valuation

RTI International conducted an economic valuation to assist APNEP in our efforts to measure and communicate the societal contributions made by natural resources within the Albemarle-Pamlico watershed. The findings will also assist in improving policy and decision makers' understanding of the value of ecosystem services provided by the rich resources of the Albemarle-Pamlico region, consistent with the objectives and actions outlined in our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP).

The analysis focuses on two main questions:

1) What are the main ways in which the human populations in and around the watershed depend on and benefit from the watershed's land and water resources and related ecosystems?

2) How can the benefits they derive each year from their connections to these natural assets and systems be measured and expressed in dollar terms?

Slides from the webinar held April 27, 2016 to present the findings can be accessed here.

The report can be downloaded here.

CCMP action: D3.1
