How Much is the Green Worth
What economic benefits and opportunities do Conservation Units (UCs) bring to Brazil? Based on an assessment of direct and indirect economic gains from activities such as forest extractivism and fishing, tourism and public use, protection of carbon stocks, use of hydric resources to generate electricity, and generation of budget transfers to municipalities via ICMS ecológico , this book, produced within the framework of the Pro-UC Coalition, demonstrates that investing in conservation presents a high-benefit cost ratio. Promoting the improvement and expansion of UCs is a way to obtain far superior economic and social returns to the amounts allocated. In a mega-diverse country whose economy is directly dependent on nature, it is fundamental that the environmental asset protected by these areas be recognized.
