Timm Kroeger

Timm Kroeger is the senior environmental economist in The Nature Conservancy’s Central Science department. His work focuses on the measurement and economic valuation of the benefits people derive from nature; the incorporation of these values into cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, and social return-on-investment analyses of conservation and environmental quality projects; and the application of incentive-based mechanisms in general, and payment for ecosystem services in particular, to the conservation of ecosystem services and biodiversity. Timm holds an MA in Economics from the University of Würzburg (Germany) and a Ph.D. in Environmental Studies from the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York.
