No 2023, DEOS Working Papers from Athens University of Economics and Business

Abstract: Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) are recognized but still considered as the 'residual' ES subcategory and remain understudied. Their potential to shape common identities and impact societal perspectives on ocean/marine resources' management explains why further research on CES can widen the range of information needed for policymaking, especially in cases of blue tourism interventions. In this chapter , we review some possible conceptual frameworks for the CES classification along with the monetary and non-monetary (revealed and stated preference) methods for their valuation. Attention is given to the stated methods that the last years have received increasing attention and exhibit some potential to be linked with Maritime Spatial Planning decisions. An attempt to operationally define CES in the context of Marine Protected Areas and investigate the determinants of perceived cultural heritage and identity features has been adopted in two Interreg projects, AMAre and RECONNECT.
