Barton, D.N., E. Stange, S. Blumentrath, N. Vågnes Traaholt (2015) Economic valuation of eco-system services for policy. A pilot study on green infrastructure in Oslo. NINA Report 1114.
The work has been carried out in the EU FP7 financed project OpenNESS as part of WP5 Case study activities. (http://www.openness-project.eu/). The OpenNESS case study in Oslo is a collaboration between NINA, VISTA Analyse A/S and Oslo Municipality. We gratefully acknowledge the collaboration with Oslo Municipality’s Urban Environment Agency (BYM), Planning and Building Agency (PBE) and Water and Sewage Agency (VAV) in making this study possible, both through the contribution of data bases and for discussions with their ex-perts at regular meetings regarding the role of economic valuation of ecosystem services in Oslo Municipality. In particular we acknowledge the coordination of Future Cities Project at BYM who has been the OpenNESS project’s main facilitator of contacts with other colleagues within Oslo Municipality.
