  1. Sustainable Land Management

    Sustainable Land Management

    Edited by Floor Brouwer, Teunis van Rheenen, Shivcharn S. Dhillion, Anne M. Elgersma
    In large parts of the world, the reduction in viability of agriculture and rural areas is an escalating problem. Driven by a range of factors, including insufficient economic returns from land used agriculturally, ageing populations in rural areas and limited economic perspectives from agriculture and other land-based activities, marginalisation could induce harmful abandonment of the land or the loss of biodiversity and landscape features. New perspectives arise in rural areas and multifunctionality is often seen as a strategy to cope with marginalisation. This important book offers a contemporary overview of strategies employed to cope with marginalisation of the land and improve viability of the rural countryside. The study is based on detailed case studies undertaken in Europe, the USA, Japan and a number of developing countries. Learn More

  3. Sustainable Welfare in the Asia-Pacific

    Sustainable Welfare in the Asia-Pacific

    Edited by Phillip Lawn, Matthew Clarke
    Frequent references are made to the ‘Asian economic miracle’ as a means of describing the wave of GDP growth experienced across the Asia-Pacific region over the past twenty years. Implicit in this description is the assumption that the Asia-Pacific region has progressed at the same rate that GDP has risen over the same period. But is this truly the case? Employing a Genuine Progress Indicator as an alternative measure of sustainable welfare, the contributors to this book aim to answer this question by presenting case studies of seven Asia-Pacific nations. The results reveal that all is not as positive as conventional indicators might suggest. Learn More

  5. Ecological Economics of the Oceans and Coasts

    Ecological Economics of the Oceans and Coasts

    Edited by Murray Patterson, Bruce Glavovic
    This timely book offers a fresh view on how oceans and coasts are, and should be, managed. The urgency of this issue is increasingly being recognized, as critical limits to the economic exploitation of our oceans and coasts are reached. The authors argue that ecological economics is in a unique position to address this problem given its particular focus on interconnected ecological and economic systems. Learn More

  7. Socioecological Transitions and Global Change

    Socioecological Transitions and Global Change

    Edited by Marina Fischer-Kowalski, Helmut Haberl
    This significant new book analyses fundamental changes in society-nature interaction: the socioeconomic use of materials, energy and land. The volume presents a number of case studies addressing transitions from an agrarian to an industrial socioecological regime, analysed within the materials and energy flow accounting (MEFA) framework. It is argued that by concentrating on the biophysical dimensions of change in the course of industrialization, social development issues can be explicitly linked to changes in the natural environment.

  8. Frontiers in Ecological Economic Theory and Application

    Frontiers in Ecological Economic Theory and Application

    Edited by Jon D. Erickson, John M. Gowdy
    Research on the cutting-edge of economics, ecology, and ethics is presented in this timely study. Building from a theoretical critique of the tradition of cost–benefit analysis, the contributors lay the foundation for a macroeconomics of environmental sustainability and distributive justice. Attention is then turned to three of the most critical areas of social and environmental applied research – biodiversity, climate change, and energy. Learn More

  9. Frontier Issues in Ecological Economics

    Frontier Issues in Ecological Economics

    Philip Lawn
    Ecological economics formally emerged in the late 1980s in response to the failure of mainstream economic paradigms to deal adequately with the interdependence of social, economic and ecological systems. Frontier Issues in Ecological Economics focuses on a range of cutting-edge issues in the field of ecological economics and outlines plausible measures to achieve a more sustainable, just, and efficient world for all.

  10. Industrial Ecology and Spaces of Innovation

    Industrial Ecology and Spaces of Innovation

    Edited by Ken Green, Sally Randles
    This book explores the disciplinary interfaces and practical implications of working across the two disciplines of industrial ecology (IE) and innovation studies (IS). Both disciplines have something to say about instigating environmental improvement and more sustainable futures. IE is predicated on the idea that social and economic systems mirror, or should be made to mirror, natural ecological systems. Proponents of IE devise models and techniques to trace material and energy resource flows as they move through social and economic systems. They propose policy and management improvements to increase the resource efficiency of such systems. By contrast, IS researchers work with the idea that innovation is a dynamic activity, vital to social and economic change and is shaped by a range of actors in industry, in government and in households.

  11. Joint Production and Responsibility in Ecological Economics

    Joint Production and Responsibility in Ecological Economics

    Stefan Baumgärtner, Malte Faber, Johannes Schiller
    This groundbreaking book takes a fresh look at how environmental problems emerge from economic activity and how they may be addressed in a responsible and sustainable manner. At its centre is the concept of joint production. This captures the phenomenon whereby several effects necessarily emerge from one activity and whereby human action always entails unintended consequences. This, according to the authors, is the structural cause behind modern-day environmental problems. Learn More

  13. The Evolution of Markets for Water

    The Evolution of Markets for Water

    Edited by Jeff Bennett
    This book presents a detailed picture of the evolutionary processes at work in water markets with a particular focus on theory and practice in Australia. Policymakers are striving to strike a balance between the pros and cons of a property rights/market based approach to the allocation of water resources, as opposed to an approach that centres on government regulation. The current movement in Australia is toward the use of markets, and numerous reforms are either underway or under consideration in that direction. This provides an ideal opportunity to observe the factors at play in determining the balance and hence the mix of policy instruments at work. The distinguished contributors offer a range of perspectives – economic, legal, environmental – and combine conceptual analysis with evidence from real policy decisions. Learn More

  14. Economic Growth, Material Flows and the Environment

    Economic Growth, Material Flows and the Environment

    Rutger Hoekstra
    Rutger Hoekstra examines the complex relationship between the monetary economy and the materials flows that are extracted and emitted by economic activities. These physical flows are responsible for many important environmental problems such as unsustainable resource depletion, waste production and climate change. This book discusses, applies and improves upon techniques which link the monetary and physical economies for environmental analyses. Learn More

    The Economics of Everglades Restoration

    Richard Weisskoff
    The restoration of the Florida Everglades, the largest ecosystem restoration project in the world, is now underway.

    The Economics of Technology Diffusion and Energy Efficiency

    Peter Mulder
    Technological change plays a crucial role in realizing energy efficiency improvements and, therefore, in ameliorating the conflict between economic growth and environmental quality. However, the diffusion of new technologies can prove a costly and lengthy process, meaning that many firms do not invest in best-practice technologies. The author offers important new explanations for this energy-efficiency paradox. Learn More
