Person details


Key research 

  • Environmental non-market valuation, particularly discrete choice experiments
  • Marine park management and social values
  • Divergence of preferences between different stakeholder groups in NRM
  • Better integration of intangible values in evidence-based decision making


Dr Abbie Rogers has been involved in several projects using non-market valuation techniques to investigate conservation preferences held by scientists and the broader community.
This has included valuations of marine reserves in Western Australia, where she has also examined how people react to different management approaches for marine conservation and for coastal hazard management, and explored social acceptance of marine biodiversity offset policies.

A key focus of Abbie's research is to promote better integration of non-market valuation in environmental policy and decision making processes.

Current activities

As well as researching marine biodiversity values and evaluating the benefits and costs of marine restoration projects within the NESP, Abbie is involved in other projects in the Centre for Environmental Economics & Policy (CEEP), UWA, including projects with the Bushfire & Natural Hazards CRC and the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities. Abbie is also a theme leader for the UWA Ocean Institute's 'Coasts and Communities' research theme.


Dr Abbie Rogers has been a Research Fellow with CEEP and the School of Agriculture & Environment, UWA, since 2009.
