Abstract: "River fisheries, and inland fisheries in general within the tropical regions of the world (between 30oN and 30oS of the Equator), provide a range of benefits for many Developing Countries including a means of livelihood and a source of food for millions of people. However, national policies relating to crucial issues such as economic development, poverty alleviation, food security, conservation and sustainability, often fail to recognize these important attributes. Within this general context, the following report considers the role of valuation and its contribution to policy-making and river fishery management. This report is based on a series of regional review papers and aims to provide a review of the global status of tropical rivers and inland fisheries valuation, to consider the impact of changes in river basin management, and to compare the range of valuation approaches which have been used."
