Zusammenfassung: Nature’s Contributions to People (NCP) are all the contributions, both positive and negative, of living nature including diversity of organisms, ecosystems, and their associated ecological and evolutionary processes to the quality of life for people (IPBES 2019). This working paper presents the conceptual framework and the methodological procedure to be used for deriving monetary values for 15 NCPs, selected within the ValPar.CH project for studying benefits and added value of ecological infrastructure in Switzerland. Following the ValPar.CH project approach this paper focuses exclusively on NCP’s positive contributions. To measure NCPs´ economic benefits, we propose to apply the exchange value approach, which is used for the valuation of ecosystem services in the United Nations System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA). The contribution of this working paper is two-fold. Firstly, we argue for the inclusion of an analysis of the institutional resource regime that governs an NCP and the ecosystem asset from which it originates. This is important to develop an understanding of whether the resulting monetary value depends on public policies and property rights rather than just market forces. Secondly, we lay out the detailed descriptions of the methodologies that will be used for valuing each of the 15 selected NCPs. The scope of the economic valuation of NCPs is limited to the assessment of NCPs´ values from an anthropocentric perspective and, consequently, does not consider intrinsic values of ecosystems.
