FAO's Global Action on Pollination Services for Sustainable Agriculture

Non-economic value

Chapter 5 of the initial scoping for the thematic assessment of pollination and pollinators associated with food production will assess non-economic valuation, with special emphasis on the experience of indigenous and local communities, of impacts of the decline of diversity and/or populations of pollinators. Management and mitigation options as appropriate to different visions, approaches and knowledge systems will also be assessed.
