Overview

Written by individuals who have been involved in the "Political Economy of the Environment" program of the World Bank Institute, this volume presents the economic tools used by the program to choose between policy- and decision-making processes at macro, sector, and project levels for development programs. The aim of the work is to integrate economy-wide policies with the analytical tools for monetary valuation of environmental impacts. After studying the relationship between policies, laws, regulations, and the environment, revealed and stated preference valuation methods are explored in terms of natural resources and the health impact of air pollution.
