Growing Pains is a monitor of how well we are doing in protecting environmental goods in developing countries. Key actors - theoreticians (development economists in particular), government ministers and policy planners, chief executive officers in the private sector and their advisers, and heads of institutions (national and multilateral) - will surely identify with specific issues explored in this book.' Carlos Magarinos, Director-General, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation. 'It is essential reading for all those working on poverty eradication and sustainable development.' International Affairs. 'This new unique book, with contributions from an outstanding collection of authors in both the developed and developing worlds provides essential reading for theoreticians, ... government ministers and policy planners, chief executive officers in the private sector and their advisers, and heads of institutions.' Social and Environmental Accounting. 'It is undoubtedly essential reading for businesses working in developing countries and those involved in international environmental cooperation, both in the field and in its management. It has high value as background reading for students and researchers in environmental management.' International Journal of Environment and Pollution
