About this book

Environmental economics as a discipline is relatively new in India, though concern for the environment is not. This volume brings together works in the area of environmental and resource economics through theoretical, historical, evolutionary, and theme-based perspectives. It captures the different trends that have emerged over the last two decades in the field of environment and development. Eminent environmental economists discuss various issues relating to recent advances in theory; land and water; accounting and valuation; energy and industry; international concerns such as trade and environment and climate change; and areas of challenge and interdisciplinary research.
