Abstract

This paper aims to estimate the economic value of ecosystem services in the suburban Satoyama area. First, we have grouped ecosystem services into 13 indices based on Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. Land use data at 1/2500 scale is used for mapping ecosystems and 12 categories were classified, in consideration of the characteristic of the suburban Satoyama region such as paddy field and abandoned cultivation. Then, we have made 5 terms of land use maps(1955-2005) with GIS and traced the transition of the land use for 50 years. Agricultural productive service was estimated from statistical data. Regulating services were estimated from models of research in the past that is applicable to Satoyama region. Cultural service and supporting service were surveyed with questionnaires and estimated by Contingent Valuation Method (CVM). Consequently, productive service value of 3 billion yen and Regulating and cultural service of 0.6 billion yen were estimated.
