Abstract [en]

This research synthesis reports the main findings from a review of economic values associated with nature-based recreation in Sweden. The purpose of the work was to support policy and identify areas for future research. Data came from over 150 scientific publications and other public sources. The information is structured under different categories to illustrate the economic significance and range of this sector. We find inter alia a lack of systematic data for several recreation activities (including nature-based tourism), a significant growth in the outdoor equipment industry, and a rather modest economic involvement by the public sector. We conclude there is a need for more comprehensive and systematically collected data, methodological development and interdisciplinary research.
