Title Economic without market: Policy inferences from natural-based tourism studies in Namibia
Description The study documents policy inferences from valuation studies carried out on nature/based tourism in Namibia. It is argued that significant resource rents do exist, which could be captured by improving pricing policies. A combination of methods is suggested, including user fees, indirect taxation schemes and environmental voluntary funds.
