Task 5.4: Economic development and ecosystem service bundles

The objective here will be to produce an integrated econometric analysis that can capture the possible reversed links between economic development and ecosystem services. First, we will enlist previous results (Tasks WP3 and WP4) to model potential multi-vocal links between economic development and ecosystem services using a simultaneous equation system and considering alternative measures of ecosystem states developed in WP4. Second, we will estimate econometric models, allowing for control of correlation between explanatory variables and error terms, and of potential spatial auto-correlation (i.e., the neighbourhood situation is not neutral and can impact the situation of an area). The spatial unit will be “municipality”, and we will conduct the analysis in at least two countries (France and Germany). Extension to others countries will be subject to data availability.
