In developing countries, where growth expectations are high, least-cost environmental policies are crucial since they can reduce the conflict between economic growth and the environment. In view of this, policymakers in these economies must be very aware of the relationship between economic and environmental issues to offer policy initiatives which can increase efficiency and improve equity. The authors provide a comprehensive analysis of topics varying from the general problems of growth and conservation to specific applications such as: pollution costs, environmental taxation, deforestation and climate change. This volume also offers policymakers a comprehensive view of the challenges they face and the legacies they leave, in order to convert environmental policy making into an actual programme of welfare improvement. "Environmental Economics and Policy Making in Developing Countries" is couched in accessible language and is policy-oriented. It should therefore be of great interest to both policymakers and scholars in development economics, environmental studies and international agencies involved in these areas.
