This important collection brings together Peter Nijkamp's work in the area of environmental and resource economics. The essays selected pay particular attention to theory and modelling, environmental analysis as well as policy issues and implications.
The first part focuses on the economic management of environmental goods and scarce resources, the analysis of spatial-environmental externalities, the study of biodiversity from an economic perspective, the economics of water use and the implications of climate change for global economic policy. The second part focuses on environmental-economic modelling. It presents new advances in modelling and evaluation, dealing with the role of endogenous technology and trade in economic growth models, the design of second-best energy policies and the implications of environmental externalities in the aviation sector. The third part considers the relevance and applicability of evaluation studies for environmental management and the final part examines the scope of environmental policy analysis.
This collection will be essential reading for scholars and students in both environmental and ecological economics.
