Description

A survey on peoples’ preferences for outdoor recreation areas in Cape Town. It was collected as part of a project on Ecosystem Services Accounting for Development (ESAfD) in six different countries. The main objective of this project is to contribute to the accounting of ecosystem services by enhancing the knowledge and empirical experience of valuing these services. To achieve this goal and lead to results that are in line with the national accounting principles, we use simultaneous methodologies and applications in all of the seven countries that represent different groups including low, medium and high-income countries. By rigorously linking biophysical and socioeconomic data, the results are relevant not only for national accounting but also for local and regional landscape planning.
