Module "Market and Non-Market Valuation of Environmental Goods" (075 016)
Block Seminar for students in the Master's program
The valuation of environmental goods and amenities is often complicated by the lack of market prices. This seminar will deal with distinct empirical methods to estimate the value of environmental goods and amenities. Methods to be covered include both market and non-market valuation methods, such as hedonic pricing, contingent valuation and revealed preference methods to elicit willingness-to-pay.
