Luke authored a guidance manual on value transfer methods for ecosystem services for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The manual was launched on 3 December 2013 by Sir Partha Dasgupta at the Valuation and Accounting of Natural Capital for Green Economy (VANTAGE) conference in Nairobi, Kenya. The purpose of this guidance manual is to show how the value of ecosystem services can be estimated and incorporated into decision making. It is designed to help a broad audience of conservation managers, government officials, private sector managers, NGOs and statisticians to understand the available information on the value of ecosystem services and how this information can be transferred to inform the decisions that they make. The pdf of the manual is available for download below.
