Valuing the Environment podcast chat with Boyd Blackwell

In 2017, Deloitte Access Economics estimated the value of the Great Barrier Reef at
$56 billion. You may ask, how could you even attempt to place a dollar value on the Reef? What techniques are used? Aren’t some of our environmental assets priceless? Or is some number better than no number at all? These questions are explored in my latest podcast conversation with Dr Boyd Blackwell on Valuing the Environment. Boyd is Principal of AquaEquis Consulting and President of the Australia New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics (ANZSEE).
