Private and Social Values of Wetlands Research Reports

The Private and Social Values of wetlands project is funded by Environment Australia and the Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation as part of the National Wetlands Research and Development Program. The research is led by Prof Bennett. Stuart Whitten is the Research Officer appointed to the project. The focus of the project is the development of a process that enables the determination of future outcomes for wetlands that are privately owned and the design of institutional structures that will ensure the those outcomes are achieved. This methodology encompasses the use of bio-economic modelling, cost benefit analysis and non-market valuation techniques. Two case study sites feature in the research - the Upper South East of South Australia and the Murrumbidgee Floodplain between Wagga Wagga and Hay in New South Wales.

Because these reports present the results of work in progress, they should not be reproduced in part or in whole without the authorisation of the Research Project Leader, Professor Jeff Bennett.
