About this book

This collection of papers brings together in one volume a selection of research reports on five priority areas of environmental economics: policy instruments, cost-analysis, cost efficiency, contingent valuation, and experimental economics. The contributions are written by a select group of scholars of international repute. The result is a survey of international and national policy issues and the way they are addressed by environmental economists.
