Direct market valuation
RICS Insight Paper ‘Value of natural capital - the need for chartered surveyors’ published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 2017 suggests that direct market valuation is a revealed preference method that draws on the revealed preferences of stakeholders.

This can be extended to the cost of avoiding damage to an ecosystem, or the cost of replacing a damaged or destroyed service.
