The objective of the ASEAN TEEB Scoping Study is to pursue the mainstreaming process of the economics of ecosystems and biodiversity by conducting an assessment and valuation of key ecosystems and ecosystem services in Southeast Asia. The study also aims to assist ASEAN Member States to develop green growth economies.
Implementers and donors: ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity, UNEP, GIZ, British Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
The aims of the scoping study are to:
1. Gather and review the existing evidence on the value of ecosystem services in Southeast Asia, and to identify key critical ecosystems and ecosystems services in Southeast Asia;
2. Conduct an initial set of case studies to highlight the value of ecosystem services;
3. Identify and recommend policy relevant case studies in ASEAN Member States to be conducted in a future full ASEAN TEEB study.
The ASEAN TEEB scoping study provides evidence of the links between nature and the human well-being by recognizing and valuing not only the tangible goods and services one can derive from nature but also its intangible values which are usually ignored from analysis, as they have no market, no price or cash value.
