The assessment instruments developed by economists provide a better understanding of the incentives that must be put in place to curb the damage to biodiversity by combining the lever of access to fragile ecosystems with pricing of their uses. Fiscal and parafiscal instruments, tradable allowances schemes, and payment for environmental services all allow a value to be placed on biodiversity by pricing some of its uses. Their applications, still in their infancy, can complement devices regulating or limiting access. Their deployment on a larger scale is likely to ramp up investments in ecosystem enhancement and make them a real driver of the ecological transition.
