Title An Economic Assessment of the Costs and Benefits of Natura 2000 Sites in Scotland
Description This study was commissioned by the Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs 
Department (SEERAD) in November 2002 to conduct a detailed assessment of the economic costs and benefits of the Scottish N2K sites. Equipped with such knowledge, it is hoped that attempts can then be made to improve the cost-effectiveness of managing these sites, in particular by enhancing the benefits that may accrue and minimizing the costs.
