Valuation Literature on Chemicals: A Description of an Inventory of Valuation Literature on Chemicals
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat, Nordisk Kemikaliegruppe (NKG)2017 (English)Report (Other academic)
The purpose of this project has been to create an easily accessible inventory of studies that cover the full impact pathway from chemical exposure (or emission) to socio-economic valuation of the related health impacts. The main outcome is an excel-based database of 45 identified studies covering 15 substances or substance groups. For the vast majority of chemicals in use there are no studies with monetary valuations.
The identified studies can support policy assessment by providing possible reference values and support to value transfer. The database includes information on region and health impact analysed as well as on the valuation method used. A brief guidance note describes how each study might be used for value transfer.The report describes the search strategy, summarises the findings, identifies knowledge gaps and provides suggestions for future updates of the database.
