The health of urban rivers is important for sustainable living, but little data is available to aid communities in making decisions about improving urban river health. This project seeks to apply and extend a newly developed revealed preference approach which identifies how household recreation and amenity values change from improved urban river health.
The proposed method will be applied to the Cooks and Georges Rivers in NSW to estimate amenity and recreation benefits for improved river health for the local communities.
