Resumen: With increasing recognition of the centrality of ecosystem services in agricultural production, the need for placing a value on these services has also increased in order to provide a value- or “evidence”-based argument for their maintenance and enhancement. There are different ways to define and measure value, of which monetary is only one. The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) notes that: “in keeping with the general anthropocentric notion of ‘nature’s benefits to people’, one might consider a benefit to be an ecosystem’s contribution to some aspect of a good quality of life, where a benefit is a perceived thing or experience of value,” (IPBES, 2013). SECTION 3. MEASURES AT LANDSCAPE SCALE160In the definition provided by the IPBES Conceptual Framework, the “value” is multi-dimensional and cannot be properly estimated with only one variable. This is one of the bases of the multi-dimensional aspect of the protocol for socio-economic valuation of pollination-friendly landscapes presented here.Commonly, valuation estimates have focused on the benefits of pollination to crop production and do not include all the benefits that pollinators provide to the economy. A region ́s wealth includes the financial, physical, natural, human and social capital that enhances development and sustainable rural livelihoods. Therefore, comparing the influence of practices (or landscapes) that are pollinator-friendly versus practices that are unfriendly, using all of these measures of capital would be a more robust approach to putting a value on pollinator changes, and allows quantification of the synergies and trade-offs associated to pollinator enhancement. This chapter presents a protocol for determining the socio-economic value of pollinator-friendly versus -unfriendly practices that can be implemented at different spatial levels (for example, farms or landscapes). The scope is comprehensive and includes both small- and large-scale farming systems; indeed, the comparison between these systems can be of great interest. The results of the application of this protocol may interest both producers and decision-makers wishing to answer, for example, questions such as: are differences in the socioeconomic assets of the producers associated with friendly or unfriendly practices? Can a group of socioeconomic variables predict the number of pollinator-friendly practices applied by producers? Which assets should be promoted to enhance the number of pollinator-friendly practices? Are there trade-offs or synergies among different assets (for example, biodiversity and crop production)?
