Specifically, it is designed to help a broad audience of practitioners, managers, government officials, private sector managers, NGOs, and statisticians to understand the available environmental economic tools and how the information generated can be used to inform the decisions that they make. The broad objective of this toolkit is to provide an understanding of how environmental economic methods can be used to support decision-making in the context of LME/MPA/ICM. To this end, the Toolkit provides: 1 A brief introduction to key environmental economic principles that are relevant to LME/MPA/ICM, 2 Non-technical explanations of environmental economic methods and their applicability to different decision contexts.
