Economic Valuation of Environmental and Resource Costs and Benefits in the Water Framework Directive: Technical Guidelines for Practitioners (2009)
These Guidelines aim to provide guidance on key issues in economic valuation related to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). Practical guidance on undertaking valuation studies that are readily applicable for water policy purposes is necessary given the economic value of water, the important role of water economics in underpinning the WFD, and the limited economic information and expertise in many river basin authorities. The Guidelines are targeted at expert practitioners and economic specialists who carry out valuation studies, rather than policy advisors or policy/decisionmakers.
