Sustainable Development: Economics and Environment in the Third World
The authors elaborate on the concept of sustainable development and illustrate how environmental economics can be applied to the developing world. Beginning with an overview of the concept of sustainable development, the authors indicate its implications for discounting and economic appraisal. Case studies on natural resource economics and management issues are drawn from Indonesia, Sudan, Botswana, Nepal and the Amazon.
