A Benefit Transfer Approach to the Estimation of Agro-Ecosystems Services Benefits: A Case Study of Kern County, California




The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the use of benefit transfer as methodology for measuring baseline and marginal value (loss) estimates of agro-ecosystem non-market goods and services. The benefit transfer methodology is used to estimate the agro-ecosystem non-market goods and services values in Kern County, California. We conclude by suggesting that some estimate of the value of the non-market good and services provided by agro-ecosystem functions is important to the determination of either public policy prescriptions or market-based incentive programs that have as their objective maintaining or increasing those agro-ecosystem function non-market goods and services.
