  4. Governing the Environment

    Governing the Environment

    Edited by Albert Breton, Giorgio Brosio, Silvana Dalmazzone, Giovanna Garrone

  5. Distributional Impacts of Climate Change and Disasters

    Distributional Impacts of Climate Change and Disasters

    Edited by Matthias Ruth, María E. Ibarrarán
    Climate change tends to increase the frequency and intensity of weather-related disasters, which puts many people at risk. Economic, social and environmental impacts further increase vulnerability to disasters and tend to set back development, destroy livelihoods, and increase disparity nationally and worldwide. This book addresses the differential vulnerability of people and places, introducing concepts and methods for analysis and illustrating the impact on local, regional, national, and global scales.

  6. Climate Change and Agriculture

    Climate Change and Agriculture

    Robert Mendelsohn, Ariel Dinar
    Despite its great importance, there are surprisingly few economic studies of the impact of climate on agriculture and how agriculture can adapt under a variety of conditions. This book examines 22 countries across four continents, including both developed and developing economies. It provides both a good analytical basis for additional work and solid results for policy debate concerning income distributional effects such as abatement, adaptation, and equity. Learn More

  7. Markets for Carbon and Power Pricing in Europe

    Markets for Carbon and Power Pricing in Europe

    Edited by Francesco Gullì
    Why do power prices seem to be correlated with the carbon price in some markets and not in others? This crucial question is at the centre of Francesco Gullì’s enlightening book, through which the contributing authors investigate a number of related issues. In particular, they explore why power firms are not consistent in passing-through into power prices the opportunity cost of carbon. They also examine the relationship between the pass-through mechanism and the structure of the power market. Learn More

  8. Choice Experiments Informing Environmental Policy

    Choice Experiments Informing Environmental Policy

    Edited by Ekin Birol, Phoebe Koundouri
    This innovative book is a compilation of state-of-the-art choice experiment studies undertaken in several European Union (EU) countries, including Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom.

  9. Environmental Governance and Decentralisation

    Environmental Governance and Decentralisation

    Edited by Albert Breton, Giorgio Brosio, Silvana Dalmazzone, Giovanna Garrone
    This book examines how different countries define and address environmental issues, specifically in relation to intergovernmental relations: the creation of institutions, the assignment of powers, and the success of alternative solutions. It also investigates whether a systemic view of the environment has influenced the policy-making process. The broad perspective adopted includes a detailed analysis of seventeen countries in six continents by scholars from a range of disciplines – economics, political science, environmental science and law – thus producing novel material that moves away from the conventional treatment of decentralisation and the environment in economic literature.

  10. Technological Change and Environmental Policy

    Technological Change and Environmental Policy

    Shunsuke Managi
    This important book provides a comprehensive analysis of technological change and environmental policy within the (context of) oil and gas industries. It identifies and measures the impact of technological change, both in market and environmental output sectors and takes steps to identify the key causal relationships. The author focuses on the design and implementation of environmental policies that encourage technological progress in the face of the depletion of natural resources and the increasing stringency of environmental regulations. Detailed policy scenarios provide quantitative assessments that indicate the significance of potential benefits of technological change and well-designed environmental policy. Learn More

  11. Scarcity, Entitlements and the Economics of Water in Developing Countries

    Scarcity, Entitlements and the Economics of Water in Developing Countries

    P. B. Anand
    P.B. Anand argues that if water supply and sanitation were mainly problems of technology or financial resources, they would have been resolved long ago. While appreciating that technology and finances are important, he ascertains that there are many other factors affecting our ability to intervene and improve the effectiveness of policies. The author explores these factors, raising questions such as ‘How is water scarcity defined?’, ‘Are there patterns that indicate how nations use available freshwater resources?’, ‘Does water shortage make nations use water more efficiently?’, and ‘What explains the variation in progress with regard to Millennium Development Goals related to water and sanitation?’.

  12. Economic Valuation of River Systems

    Economic Valuation of River Systems

    Edited by Fred J. Hitzhusen
    The book applies benefit–cost analysis and a wide array of non-market and distribution economic valuation methods in ecologic context to determine the pay-off and distribution impacts of various infrastructure and water quality improvements to eight river systems in the Great Lakes region of the US. The generally positive results have important implications for public policy and future research. Learn More

  13. Redesigning Environmental Valuation

    Redesigning Environmental Valuation

    Neil A. Powe
    This comprehensive volume explores the extent to which the challenges facing stated preference environmental valuation can be overcome through mixing methods. In redesigning stated preference, two approaches are considered: mixing methods within conventional stated preference; and then moving away from the conventional to explore the use of group methods within preference construction and forming a social consensus on willingness to pay. These approaches are assessed in the light of qualitative findings evaluating the applicability of environmental valuation. Learn More

  16. The Impact of Climate Change on Regional Systems

    The Impact of Climate Change on Regional Systems

    Edited by Joel B. Smith, Robert Mendelsohn
    Models are used to estimate potential physical and biological impacts, efficient adaptations, and residual damages from climate change. The contributors cover a broad array of climate change impacts on affected market sectors (including water supply, agriculture, coastal resources, timber, and energy demand) as well as ecosystems and biodiversity. An integrated hydrologic-agriculture model is developed to explore how the region would adapt to changes in water flows. Interactions between climate impacts and population and economic growth, urbanization, and technological change are also explored. For example, the study examines how both climate change and projected land development affect the region’s terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity. Learn More

  18. Economic Modelling of Climate Change and Energy Policies

    Economic Modelling of Climate Change and Energy Policies

    Edited by Carlos de Miguel, Xavier Labandeira, Baltasar Manzano
    Climate change and energy consumption are at the forefront of current environmental debate. Whilst energy is essential to the functioning and survival of our societies, the environmental impact that energy consumption is having, particularly on climate change, is a growing concern and the design and practicalities of energy and energy-related environmental policies are under constant scrutiny. This innovative new book not only addresses the economic assessment of environmental and energy policies but also discusses the efficiency and distributional consequences these policies have for producers and consumers.

  19. Choice Modelling and the Transfer of Environmental Values

    Choice Modelling and the Transfer of Environmental Values

    Edited by John Rolfe, Jeff Bennett
    The focus of this unique collection of case studies is the validity and accuracy of benefit transfer using choice modelling, rather than the traditional focus of transferring results from contingent valuation and travel cost models. The book includes a simple guide to using choice modelling results in a benefit transfer process, an overview of the theoretical issues involved, and a number of case studies from Australia, Finland, New Zealand, the UK and the US. The conclusion is that the benefit transfer process is not straightforward, but that use of the choice modelling technique allows for more ‘automatic’ adjustment of values by the factors that frame the case study of interest.
