Abstractdc.description.abstractStarting from the framework proposed by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment(MEA) - which conceptually links nature’s services with human wellbeing - we design and alsoapply empirically what we have called the total economic value calculating matrix (TEVCM) toestimate the monetary value of the annual flow of benefits provided by Chile’s national systemof protected areas (NSPA). The calculated economic value of this flow amounts to US$2.55billion per year. We also analyse the relevance and usefulness of the methodology we proposeand use the valuation exercise presented to extract some normative lessons regarding natureconservation in Chile as well as in developing countries rich in natural resource endowmentses_ES
