Ecological damage has long been neglected, for as a res nullius, the environment has been deemed of little value until recently. As the negative impact of ecological damage is becoming much more transparent and the diverse value of the environment is better understood, many nations and regions have began to legislate on compensation for ecological damage. The increasing importance ecological damage gains and the heatedly discussed compensation mechanisms incite the research question: how to design an effective and efficient compensation system for ecological damage, and what should be done for its establishment in China?
