The Economic Valuation of Dryland Ecosystem Services in the South African Kgalagadi by the Local Communities
Johane Dikgang, Edwin Muchapondwa
RFF Discussion Paper EfD 13-15 | December 2013
Abstract
This study seeks to value ecosystem services in the Kgalagadi area in South Africa by applying the choice experiment technique. The values placed on dryland ecosystem services by indigenous communities are estimated using a conditional logit model, a random parameter logit model and a random parameter logit model with interactions. The results show that local communities would prefer increased grazing, firewood collection, hunting opportunities, and harvesting of medicinal plants.
