World Resources Institute & partners launch Coastal Capital Guidebook: Ecosystem Valuation for Decision Making in the Caribbean

Dear Colleagues,

On February 19, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and partners will release our newest publication in our Coastal Capital series, a guidebook called Coastal Capital: Ecosystem Valuation for Decision Making in the Caribbean. This guidebook is intended for economic valuation practitioners-both economists and non-economists-who would like to conduct coastal ecosystem valuation to achieve influence and inform real-world decisions. The guidebook leads practitioners through the scoping, analysis, and outreach phases of a valuation effort.

To celebrate the publication’s launch, grab your lunch and join us for a brownbag presentation and discussion with the WRI authors, Richard Waite, Lauretta Burke, and Erin Gray.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 19 from 12:30-13:30 (EST)

WHERE: At WRI’s U.S. office in Washington, DC and on the web:

* RSVP in person
* Register for webinar

We will provide:

* An overview of WRI’s Coastal Capital series
* Lessons learned from previous “influential” coastal valuation studies in the Caribbean
* An overview of the guidebook, including step-by-step advice on conducting coastal ecosystem valuation with a specific emphasis on informing decisions
* Thoughts on next steps and opportunities for collaboration
* Cookies!

Anyone interested in ecosystem valuation and coastal policy issues should attend!

Best regards,
Rich, Lauretta, and Erin
