  1. Integrated Assessment and Management of Public Resources

    Integrated Assessment and Management of Public Resources

    Edited by Joseph Cooper, Federico Perali, Marcella Veronesi
    This multidisciplinary work explores ways of making environmental policy decisions in managing public goods and natural parks with the goal of maximizing economic benefits to society. The contributors to the volume seek the best strategies for improving the environmental sustainability and quality of a public resource by showing how to develop quantitative information about the natural area and how it interacts with the economy. Such an analysis can be used to define policies that encourage interactions among institutions, local economic agents and park users. At the same time, it provides a measure to account for the implications of those policies on the local economy. Learn More

  3. Sustainable Development Indicators in Ecological Economics

    Sustainable Development Indicators in Ecological Economics

    Edited by Philip Lawn
    Since the late 1980s and early 1990s, national governments have introduced a range of policy measures designed to steer their economies along a more sustainable path. Yet how are we to know how successful these have been? This significant new book discusses the ways in which sustainable development indicators can be improved in order to both assess the impact of past policies and avoid the repetition of previous failings.

  4. Cost–Benefit Analysis and Evolutionary Computing

    Cost–Benefit Analysis and Evolutionary Computing

    John H.E. Taplin, Min Qiu, Vivian K. Salim, Renlong Han
    This book systematically addresses the issue of interdependence between road projects in a network, when prioritising and scheduling road expansion and maintenance. The book presents substantial applications for both rural and urban projects and to the optimization of maintenance. The authors confirm the extreme sensitivity to project timing but also show that solutions with almost equal net present values may have dissimilar work schedules. One of these may be selected on environmental or other grounds without losing road user benefits. They go on to explore and demonstrate the issues associated with the integration of evolutionary computing techniques, transport modelling and cost–benefit analysis to achieve an optimal road investment timetable.

  6. Environment, Information and Consumer Behaviour

    Environment, Information and Consumer Behaviour

    Edited by Signe Krarup, Clifford S. Russell
    Over the past decade there has been growing interest in the role of information in the promotion of environmentally friendly behaviour. This book examines how and why the provision of such information can affect individual decisions concerning buying or consuming a product or valuing a policy. The information can take the form of a product label or a statement in a survey questionnaire, and the decision can be what product to buy, what food to eat or how to answer a contingent valuation question.

  8. Welfare Measurement in Imperfect Markets

    Welfare Measurement in Imperfect Markets

    Thomas Aronsson, Karl-Gustaf Löfgren, Kenneth Backlund
    This book cleverly integrates the research on welfare measurement and social accounting in imperfect market economies. In their previously acclaimed volume, Welfare Measurement, Sustainability and Green National Accounting, the authors focused on the external effects associated with environmental damage and analysed their role in the context of social accounting. This book adopts a much broader perspective by analysing a wide spectrum of resource allocation problems of real-world market economies. Learn More

    Ian J. Bateman, Richard T. Carson, Brett Day, Michael Hanemann, Nick Hanley, Tannis Hett, Michael Jones-Lee, Graham Loomes
    This manual offers a detailed, up-to-date explanation of how to carry out economic valuation using stated preference techniques.

The resulting valuations can be used for a number of purposes including, but not limited to, demonstrating the importance of a good or service; cost–benefit analysis; setting priorities for environmental policy; design of economic instruments; green national/corporate accounting, and natural resource damage assessment.
