About this book

Technical Editor - Sandra Koskoff
The emergent discipline of ecological economics is based on the idea that human activity is part of the processes and functions of the natural environment. This book presents the results of a workshop held in 1992 following the second biannual conference of the International Society for Ecological Economics. There is an emphasis on the essential connections between natural ecosystems and human socioeconomic systems, and the importance of ensuring that both remain resilient. It is clear from this book and others that we need to look for alternatives to conventional economics if lasting and permanent damage is not to be done to the environment.
