TEEB São Paulo – Ecological and socioeconomic valuation of ecosystem services of Paraíba do Sul River Basin – Paulista Portion/SP

Throughout land use spatial projections for the three different scenarios, it was possible to perform comparative analysis between the BAU scenario and the two alternative ones, obtaining the additionality in terms of ecosystem services’ provision regarding different activities in the alternative scenarios, specifically: Forest Code compliance in LC, and restoration spatial priorization in SLM. Ecosystem services modelled and economically valued were: sediment flow, soil loss, carbon sequestration and pollination. From the modeling and ecosystem services in the Basin, it was possible to provide subsidies for initiatives that aim to restore and maximize the provision of ecosystem services considered fundamental for ecological processes and the local Community.
