BC3 Seminars
The limits of valuing ecosystem services and the search for alternative ways of conceiving human-nature relations

Prof. Roldan Muradian

Visiting Professor at the Graduate Program in Economics
Universidade Federal Fluminense (Rio de Janeiro)

Abstract:

Since the publication of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment in 2005, the “ecosystem services” (ES) paradigm has consolidated its position as the mainstream framework for conceptualizing human-nature relations. However, the criticism to its analytical appropriateness and scope has been mounting, and there are already well-grounded initiatives to challenge its categories and discourse. The objectives of this presentation are twofold: (i) to summarize the limitations of the analytical features characterizing the ES paradigm; and (ii) to propose the foundations of a more comprehensive approach to understand human-nature interactions, based on the notion of “relational models”
