How can countries safeguard natural resources for future generations as they strive to reduce poverty with economic growthNULL
Environmental Economics and Sustainable Development discusses practical options to reconcile these dual goals. It explains how to place an economic value on the long-term benefits of natural resources and on the development activities that affect the environment. The author shows how to gauge the environmental impact of projects early in the evaluation cycle.
Numerous case studies describe various techniques used to appraise a country's environmental assets. These include two major studies of Madagascar and Sri Lanka.
The Madagascar study describes ways to evaluate forest resources and biodiversity. In the Sri Lanka study, the focus is on techniques to develop the energy sector while protecting the environment.
Other case studies feature economic strategies to conserve water in Haiti, rain forests in Costa Rica, and elephant herds in Kenya.
