Introduction: Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Valuation, Institutions, and Policy in Southeast Asia



The Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA) has supported numerous research projects related to coastal and marine resources over the years. This book is a collection of 16 studies carried out from 2003 to 2014 that cover the following themes: Part I, Valuing Ecosystem Services and Conservation Financing; Part II, Valuing Damages to Coastal and Marine Resources; and Part III, Institutions and Policies for Fisheries Management. The featured studies are intended for both natural resource managers tasked with coastal resource management and for students of environment and natural resource economics. The collection of studies covers a wide range of environmental problems that many coastal resource managers face. It is our hope that the studies will help in understanding these problems and how to evaluate the options to deal with them.
