Edited By: David Pearce
This is the second of two volumes of case studies that illustrate how environmental economists place values on environmental assets and on the flows of goods and services generated by those assets.
The first volume Valuing the Environment in Developing Countries illustrates methodologies and applications of valuation techniques in the developing world; this volume concentrates on developed or `wealthy' nations where the first examples of economic valuation of the environment were carried out. This important book assembles studies that discuss broad areas of application of economic valuation - from amenity and pollution through to water and health risks, from forestry to green urban space. In doing so, in this, his last book, the late David Pearce brings together leading European experts, contributors to some two dozen case studies exploring the frontiers of economic valuation of natural resources and environmental amenity in the developed world.
