Choice Experiments

Survey based method for valuing non-market goods consisted in the creation of more complex hypothetical markets where the individual chooses between alternatives elicited from combinations of different relevant attributes (and levels) of the goods. It is a stated-preference method as the individual is directly asked about their preferences.
In this field, in a typical choice experiment exercise: from the demand side perspective, individuals are asked for their willingness to pay for scenarios of improvement (defined as different combinations of relevant attributes) in the level of provision of public goods by agricultural and forestry systems; and from the supply side perspective, farmers/foresters are typically asked for their willingness to accept participating in schemes (defined as different combinations of relevant attributes -e.g. agri-environmental friendly practices) which entail such improvements (and monetary compensations for them). Below can be found assessments (from both demand and supply sides) made within the PROVIDE Project using this valuation method.
