Assessing the value of Coastal Resources in Victoria

  • Year: 2013
  • Author: WorleyParsons
  • Publisher: The Victorian Coastal Council
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Victoria

Most Victorians live, work and play close to the coast. It is also home to critical infrastructure, important economic hubs and many significant ecosystems.

The purpose of this study is to identify, characterize and quantify the "market" and "non-market" (commercial and non-commercial) value of the natural resources of the Victorian coast. The results from this study are intended to assist in policy development and decision-making that takes into account the both commercial and ecosystem service values and the interdependency of economic benefits and the health of coastal ecosystems.
