About this book

Aimed at economists and other professionals involved in development projects, this is a guide to the economic evaluation of the impact of projects on the environment. With cost-benefit analysis as the decision framework and using clear, non-mathematical language this book draws much of its illustrative material from developing countries; but its contents are also relevant to developed countries and socialist economies in transition.

- Introduction - why value the environment?
