Abstract: This study seeks to value ecosystem services in the Kgalagadi area by applying the Choice Experiment technique. The values placed on dryland ecosystem services by indigenous communities are estimated using a Conditional Logit model, Random Parameter Logit model and a Random Parameter Logit model with interactions. The results show that local communities would prefer getting increased grazing firewood collection, hunting opportunities and harvesting of medicinal plants.
