  • One of the recent developments and initiation in Nile basin is that A “TEEB-inspired study”, focusing on wetland ecosystems. The Nile Basin Wetlands TEEB, coordinated by the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI), focusing on raising awareness about the importance of wetland ecosystem services to regional, national, sectoral and local-level development processes. Under this process, fairly sizable, with more than 200 published documents on ecosystem valuation were identified covering all the riparian countries. Although incorporating a wide range of wetland types, the geographical distribution of the studies is patchy and South Sudan is among the countries with limited attempt of such studies. It is based on this backdrop that this in-depth site-specific valuation study to conduct TEEB analysis on the Sudd wetland is undergoing. The key objective of this assignment by Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) was to conduct economic valuation of biodiversity and ecosystem services of Sudd wetland to inform green infrastructure planning and development in the face of in situ and ex-situ development interventions. Specifically. to this end market price and value transfer approach has been employed to solicit the total economic value of the wetland.
