dc.description.abstractWater sensitive systems and practices provide multiple indirect benefits such as environmental and ecological services. However, due to a lack of information on the monetized value of these services many of these services are not considered during investment decision making. The compilation and synthesis of existing non-market valuation estimates of the monetary value of water sensitive systems and practices, by making reference values readily available, can encourage the incorporation of indirect benefit value information in the investment decision process. Reference information on the monetary value of indirect benefits can also be used when conducting comprehensive post-hoc analysis of investments in water management projects. This review presents the findings from an extensive survey of the literature on the key benefits and services delivered through the use of water sensitive systems and practices. The information is summarized in terms of major services: values associated with green infrastructure; ecological and environmental values of water; benefits of climate change mitigation; non-point source pollution reduction; flood hazard reduction; improved groundwater conditions; securing reliable water supply; and wastewater management. The review is primarily focused on non-market benefits, but in some cases estimates of market benefits (or tangible benefits captured through existing markets) and cost information are also presented.
