dc.description.abstract Wetlands provide an estimated net contribution of approximately US$ 10,491 per hectare annually from both products and services. The annual contribution of non-use values was estimated in the range of US$ 7.1 million for water recharge and regulation and US$ 1.7 billion for flood control. This study will enable comparison of wetlands with other sectors of the economy. To guide decisions on wetland management, it is important to recognize value in economic terms towards resource allocation, budgeting and formulation of national policies. Other benefits include tourism, purification and filtration of water, microclimate moderation, and habitat provision for diverse life forms. en
