  11. Environmental Regulation

    Environmental Regulation

    Edited by John McEldowney, Sharron McEldowney
    Featuring an original introduction by the editors, this important collection of essays explores the main issues surrounding the regulation of the environment. The expert contributors illustrate that regulating the environment in the UK is conceptually complex, involves a diverse range of institutions, techniques and methodologies and crosses geographical and national boundaries. In the USA it is more formalised, juridical, adversarial and formally dependent upon legal rules. The articles highlight the fact that despite differences in the UK and the USA's regulatory styles, environmental regulation today has much in common with both traditions. Learn More

  12. Climate Change and the World Economy

    Climate Change and the World Economy

    Edited by David I. Stern, Frank Jotzo, Leo Dobes

  17. Values, Payments and Institutions for Ecosystem Management

    Values, Payments and Institutions for Ecosystem Management

    Edited by Pushpam Kumar, Ibrahim Thiaw
    Using a selection of authoritative and original contributions, this timely book explores the uncertainty surrounding the impact of decisions undertaken to manage ecosystem services worldwide. Invariably, the policies designed and implemented to manage forests, wetlands, and marine and coastal environments often involve conflicts of interest between various stakeholders. This has added an additional layer of complexity in the context of developing countries where institutions and governance are weak or absent. Economic valuation and the subsequent design of innovative response tools such as payment for ecosystem services (PES) have the potential to offer far greater transparency. In the case of LDCs, the identification of suitable institutions for executing these tools is also of vital importance. Learn More

  18. The Global Challenge of Encouraging Sustainable Living

    The Global Challenge of Encouraging Sustainable Living

    Edited by Shane Fudge, Michael Peters, Steven M. Hoffman, Walter Wehrmeyer
    This unique book illustrates that in order to address the growing urgency of issues around environmental and resource limits, it is clear that we need to develop effective policies to promote durable changes in behaviour and transform how we view, and consume, goods and services. It suggests that in order to develop effective policies in this area, it is necessary to move beyond a narrow understanding of ‘how individuals behave’, and to incorporate a more nuanced approach that encompasses behavioural influences in different societies, contexts and settings.
