Main Information
Title Applications of the contingent valuation method in developing countries
Description The contingent valuation technique (CVM) is one survey technique for estimating the values of nonmarketed goods. This report surveys applications of CVM to date in developing countries, and discusses issues of relevance to successful implementation of this technique in these countries. This report can be used by FAO and its Member countries for guiding the work of practitioners who have a leading or technical contribution role in the design of CVM surveys. Furthermore, this report is meant to orient the work of experienced professionals with a general or technically specialized competence, towards the major steps in identification of the valuation issues, in survey design, and in the empirical methods necessary for CVM to value the nonmarketed goods.
