LAND USE, LAND USE CHANGE, BIODIVERSITY AND ECOSYSTEM SERVICES
True pricing method for agri-food products
The Land use, land use change, biodiversity and ecosystem services – Impact-specific module for true price assessment was developed by True Price and Wageningen Economic Research within the PPS True and Fair Price for agricultural, horticulture and food products.
This document contains the key methodological aspects to measure and value the impacts of agri-food products and value chains for land use, land use change, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
This impact-specific module will be complemented by five other Natural capital modules and seven Social and human capital modules. The other natural capital modules are: 1) Contribution to climate change; 2) Soil degradation; 3) Air, soil and water pollution; 4) Scarce water use; 5) Fossil fuel and other non-renewable material depletion. These impact-specific modules methodologically follow the Valuation framework for true pricing of agri-food products, which contains the theoretical framework, normative foundations and valuation guidelines, and the Assessment Method for True Pricing of Agri-Food products, which contains modelling guidance and requirements for scoping, data and reporting.
Together, these documents present a method that can be used for true pricing of agri-food products, and potentially other products as well.
If you have any questions on the module, please get in touch with us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This true price assessment module was developed by True Price and Wageningen Economic Research within the PPS AF18051/ TU18104 ‘True and Fair Price for Sustainable Products’. This project received financial support from the Topsector Agri & Food and the Topsector Tuinbouw & Uitgangsmaterialen.
