About this book

Examines our ability to assess the impact of environmental policies on the environment in particular, and on social welfare in general. The authors explore the theory of assessment, concentrating primarily on a conceptual examination of the evaluation process. The focus then shifts to the use of these tools in real-world policy situations by applying them to a series of case studies from Africa, North America, South America, Europe and Asia.


Part 1 Introduction: introduction. Part 2 Theory: improving environmental impact assessment through outcomes valuation - experience from Asia; trade-off based indicators of environmental quality - an environmental analogue to GDP; environmental project evaluation in developing countries - valuing the environment as input. Part 3 Applications: environmental outcomes assessment - using sustainability indicators for central Europe to measure the effects of transition on the environment; environmental impact assessment in Brazil; setting goals, making decisions and assessing outcomes in conversation programs administered by the US department of agriculture; alternative criteria for judging the success of agri-environmental policy in the UK; the Danish pesticide programme - success of failure depending on indicator choice.
