Natural Resource Economics/Ecosystem Services

Natural resource economics is at the core of the MFA economics team’s strength.  This not only includes water management, but also decisions about habitat, air, waste, and all of the natural capital that gives us the lives we know and value.  Quantifying the changes in natural resources is an essential component of development, regulatory, and land management decisions, and this may also involve estimating the monetary values for those resources.  The economists at MFA have extensive experience in estimating the value of ecosystem services and natural resources, and know how to incorporate those values into all types of economic decision-making.  We help our clients build the case for smart management of resources, be those clients from the energy industry, federal agencies, or non-profit organizations.
