Abstract

All over the world, aid agencies and NGOs are reviewing their development approach in the light of increasingly intensified debate about environmental issues. This book is intended as a contribution to the efforts to incorporate environmental concerns into development work. The main purposes of this book are: (1) to discuss, from an economic perspective, the causes of environmental degradation;(2) to provide a conceptual framework for the organization of information in order to enhance environmental decision-making; (3) to provide an overview of economic methods that can assist in the valuation of environmental costs and benefits; (4) to give examples of applications of the theoretical methods described.
