Ecosystem Services Examined in the West, Central and Southern African LME Studies

Interwies (2011) and Interwies and Görlitz (2013) consider the listed cultural services (aesthetic, spiritual, educational etc.) and “possibilities for tourism and recreation” as “non-use” values,69 but The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) Ecological and Economic Foundations considers all cultural services (including tourism) as “direct use” values and “possibilities for tourism and recreation” as a future direct use value (“option value”). “Nonuse value” is the satisfaction in knowing that ecosystem services, including cultural services, exist or can be passed on to future generations.70 Sources: Sumaila (2015), Interwies (2011), Interwies and Görlitz (2013).
