Incorporating Costs and Benefits of Biodiversity Conservation into Economic and Policy Decision-Making Processes

Biodiversity conservation is a resource allocation problem. That is to say, the preservation of biodiversity is part of the general problem of allocating the economy's resources between competing ends like the protection of genetic resources, habitats, species and ecosystems versus agriculture and industrial development. Biodiversity policies are a set of operational objectives and measures in conservation by which the overall efficiency objectives can be attained.
