Sustaining Development brings together, in one accessible volume, a selection of Daniel W. Bromley's path-breaking theoretical and empirical papers on economic development and environmental problems in the developing world. The book emphasizes the institutional dimensions of the environment and development problem, paying particular attention to the role of property regimes in understanding the causes and consequences of environmental degradation. Daniel W. Bromley, one of the world's leading environmental scholars, addresses the conceptual and empirical issues of alternative property rights, institutions and incentives as they relate to environmental resources. Drawing on empirical work, he sheds new light on the pressing problems faced by governments in the developing world as they struggle with the twin challenges of poverty and resource degradation. Throughout the book Professor Bromley pays careful attention to the policy implications and policy formulation of the issues under discussion. Sustaining Development will be welcomed by environmental and development economists as well as policymakers in both the industrialized and developing world.
