Ecosystem Services and Climate Adaptation

July 2010

This policy brief discusses the economic value of natural resources and ecological systems, the impacts climate change will have on natural systems and the wealth they generate, and the difficulties in pricing ecosystem goods and services. This brief focuses on two broad questions: 1) What kinds of adaptation challenges will be created by climate‐driven changes in the form, scale, and location of ecosystem goods and services. and 2) How should climate adaptation policies protect and manage natural wealth as its delivery is affected by climate change.
