The aim of this book is to draw attention to the wealth and diversity of several recent state-of-the-art choice experiment studies that have been undertaken in Europe in the last few years. The main emphasis of the book is to highlight how this method can be employed to inform environmental, agricultural, natural resource management and food policies at the European Union (EU) level. Case studies presented in this volume are from eight countries across the EU, including France, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain and UK, and cover a wide array of issues ranging from landscapes, biodiversity, cultural heritage, noise pollution, forests and water resources to food labelling. The findings reported in this book reveal that the monetary cost and benefit values captured through the CEM for various stakeholders can be used to inform efficient, effective and equitable design and implementation of various EU level policies and directives, such as Common Agricultural Policy, Water Framework Directive, Forestry Strategy, Habitats Directive and food labelling systems to name a few. Finally, the book also presents some of the most recent developments in the choice experiment theory and analysis, as well as several interesting and cutting edge applications of these developments.
