  1. Environment, Society and Natural Resource Management

    Environment, Society and Natural Resource Management

    Edited by Geoffrey Lawrence, Vaughan Higgins, Stewart Lockie
    As greater significance is placed on the relationship between people and their environment it is increasingly acknowledged that few environmental problems can be solved without considering the social context in which they arise. But what does it mean to incorporate the ‘social’ and what types of social sciences are needed? This incisive book critically reviews the theoretical perspectives that underlie social scientific contributions to natural resource management and argues for both a greater social science presence and for conceptual and methodological clarity within the social sciences themselves.

  3. Rural Planning and Management

    Rural Planning and Management

    Edited by Joe Morris, Alison Bailey, R. K. Turner, Ian J. Bateman
    Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the importance of the rural sector in integrated sustainable development strategies. This timely volume presents a selection of writings which explore the key issues in the debate on the management of the rural environment for sustainable development. Although there are considerable differences in context between developed, transitional and developing countries, the volume identifies common themes in the search for sustainable livelihoods, vibrant communities, environmental protection and the wise use of natural resources. It examines the challenges of sustainable rural development, relevant concepts, principles, techniques, analytical methods and management responses. The collection contains papers on topical rural issues such as sustainable agriculture, forestry, tourism and protected area policy. It demonstrates that, while there is convergence on the approaches to sustainable development, notably the emphasis on market mechanisms, institution building and participation, local solutions need to be found.

  4. Sustainable Forest Management and Global Climate Change

    Sustainable Forest Management and Global Climate Change

    Edited by Mohammed H.I. Dore, Rubén Guevara
    The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change recognises that, in the formulation of a global strategy for reducing global emissions of carbon (the main factor in global warming) forests could play an important role. This book highlights that role and demonstrates how the forests of the world may be harvested judiciously and sustainably. The authors argue that the forests are more than just a source of timber and wood; they discuss the role that forests play in reducing global warming, in preventing soil erosion and in helping to minimise the loss of biodiversity. Drawing on the expertise of contributors associated with the analysis of forests, this book is an in depth and fascinating discussion as well as a policy guide for the sustainable management of forests.

  5. Market-based Instruments for Environmental Management

    Market-based Instruments for Environmental Management

    Edited by Mikael S. Andersen, Rolf-Ulrich Sprenger
    Market-based instruments are becoming the environmental management tool of choice and have provided a new perspective on the conventional wisdom about policy instruments. This book analyses the complexities of designing and implementing market-based instruments using case study experiences from the Nordic countries, Japan, France, The Netherlands, Germany and Britain, where a range of green taxes have been introduced.

  6. Water Management in the 21st Century

    Water Management in the 21st Century

    Terence R. Lee
    The challenge to manage the allocation of water efficiently and equably will become a dominant theme of the new millennium. At a time when the cost of obtaining fresh water is rising throughout the globe, Terence Lee analyses the means for establishing and operating effective water markets. He proposes the application of economic instruments and the transfer of water management administration to the private sector as a means to guarantee acceptable water quality in the future in both developed and developing countries.

  7. designing institutions for environmental and resource management

    designing institutions for environmental and resource management

    Edited by Edna T. Loehman, D. M. Kilgour
    This challenging book addresses environmental and resource management problems that continue to emerge despite increasing attempts at regulation. It proposes a proactive approach to environmental and resource management through the design of institutions and organizations. In addition, it suggests that social rules for environmental management can be improved by taking into account the social costs of externalities and the administrative and transactions costs to reduce them.

  8. THE ECONOMICS OF THIRD WORLD NATIONAL PARKS

    THE ECONOMICS OF THIRD WORLD NATIONAL PARKS

    Anup Shah
    In The Economics of Third World National Parks, Anup Shah argues that parks and reserves are worth preserving, rigorously analyses the problem and advocates solutions drawing on a wide range of sources. Issues discussed include the effects of economic activity on a national park, the tourist problem, valuing a national park and the use of cost–benefit decision-making. Dr Shah uses economic analysis to explore institutional arrangements which would compensate for externalities resulting from exploitation and over-use by tourists and local communities. The price mechanism, he argues, is not a satisfactory tool with which to protect areas of rich bio-diversity. Learn More

  9. Autos, Smog and Pollution Control

    Autos, Smog and Pollution Control

    Wyn P. Grant
    Professor Grant uses an analytical framework drawn from the leading theories of public policy formation, such as policy communities, to address the issues raised by California’s policy making experience. This study shows how an ambitious attempt to encourage the use of electrically powered vehicles has faced technological constraints, consumer resistance and political opposition. Other policies developed in the state such as dealing with ‘gross emitters’, trip reduction programmes and the construction of light rail and subway systems are also critically examined. The concluding chapter relates Californian experience to the developing debate in Britain and the European Union about air pollution from motor vehicles. Learn More
