About this book

Policy decisions and government initiatives based on economic analyses are often contested by critics. This valuable new book argues, however, that economics can and does play an important role in shaping nature policy and investigates the insights that can be drawn from economic analysis to help improve nature management. To this end, existing and new methods, models and applications are explored in view of their suitability for nature policy, thereby emphasizing the limitations of a narrow and purely economic perspective. The principle objective of this book is to incorporate perspectives from outside the traditional sphere of economics, and to adopt a broad interdisciplinary and applied approach.
