This text has been written primarily for the specialist market of second and third year undergraduate and post-graduate students of economics. The clear explanations and basic principles that underpin the text, however, make it readily accessible to non-economists coming to environmental economics from diverse programmes of study.
Natural Resource and Environmental Economics is among the leading textbooks in its field.
Justice is no mere abstraction. Finding justice and doing justice is a continuous
human task. It is the activity which in any society gives politics and the law their
purpose. The activity has both a material and a discursive dimension. It has to do
with what we are, what we do and what we say. What we are and do is materially
real. How we relate to others is discursively real, a matter of communicated
explanations via words. The struggle for justice is about how we explain the basis
of a good and proper relationship between ourselves and others.
MUH-HE-KUN-NE-TUK—the River That Flows
BothWays. Native Americans revered the river and
defined themselves by it for at least twelve millennia.
Early European explorers and colonists renamed
it many times: Mauritius; River of the Mountains;
North River; Hudson River. It has been called America’s
Rhine. Those who have lived or traveled along
it, worked upon it, defended it, or simply beheld it,
have valued this river out of all proportion to its
meager 315 mile length.
The Large Volume Organic Chemicals (LVOC) BREF (Best Available Techniques reference
document) reflects an information exchange carried out under Article 16(2) of Council Directive
96/61/EC. This Executive Summary - which is intended to be read in conjunction with both the
standard introduction to the BAT chapters and the BREF Preface’s explanations of objectives,
usage and legal terms - describes the main findings, the principal BAT conclusions and the
associated emission / consumption levels.
Treatment requirements imposed on individual firms were seen as the most direct
response to pollution problems. In the climate of the early 1970s, and given the lack of regional
institutions in place, the desire to minimize compliance costs and use taxes to meet ambient goals
was less strongly felt. This is one explanation for the quantity-based regulatory system we have
in place to this day. To understand some of the other explanations, it is necessary to describe the
characteristics of a tax system in more detail.
Before doing so, mention should also be made...
Prepare a descriptive location analysis of the key elements of your market area that have
contributed to the success of your present location. Prepare an interior floor plan for one or two
standard location sizes. What size and configuration works best for your business?
Finally, create a master business procedures manual with a step-by-step explanation of your day-
to-day business operation and prepare the accompanying financial supports (i.e. cash flow
projections, start-up costs, working capital requirements).
Knowing nature is a complex, multiple, and highly political process.
This is clearly illustrated by looking at the knowledge and management of a
piece of land, seemingly isolated but impacting and impacted by decision- making
processes, politics, and technology around the world.
A barren stretch of ground in the Sahelian region of West Africa holds diverse meanings
to different people and institutions. Livestock herders value it for its proximity to a
water point and for the grass it will grow once the rains come.

Written by experienced expert from various countries, the authors come from academia and electroplating industrial players. Here, a very detailed explanation to the new application of the electroplating is followed by a solution of the environmental issue caused by the electroplating process and concluded by experimental design for optimization of electro deposition processes. ...
The two maquiladoras in our sample were selected on the basis of two criteria: (i) each is
reputed to be a leading industrial source of air pollution, and (ii) the detailed technical data
needed to estimate their emissions are available. Some brief additional explanation may be
We began the process of selecting maquiladoras for this study with a list of Paso del
Norte’s leading industrial sources of air pollution, compiled from informal information provided
by local stakeholders. We used U.S.
From a general perspective, the verbal judgements
referred to above have been obtained with one of two
principal objectives in mind, objectives that have origi-
nated and developed in traditionally differentiated pro-
fessional fields: (1) that of environmental management,
motivated by the need to solve a particular landscape
problem, such as the identification of the landscape
resources of a given location or to obtain some objecti-
ve predictors of the evaluative judgements of users of a
specific environment; and (2) that of a much more aca-
demic character, geared to the develo...
Analysis of the distribution of subject matter and library holdings represented in the
HathiTrust Digital Library and shared print repositories further confirmed that the digital
corpus is largely representative of the collective academic library collection, suggesting a
broad potential market for service.
There is not a specific identifiable cause of mental health disorders that serves as an explanation
for every child across all circumstances. Mental health issues are currently understood to be
caused by the interaction between genetic and environmental factors that include: inherited traits,
biological factors, life experiences and brain chemistry.
There are, however, some factors that have been shown to have particular impact children’s
social, emotional and mental health. They include:
