recognized for their contribution to ecosystem degradation. Less well recognized is

reduction and better environmental outcomes. The studies presented in this volume
look at one policy tool that may address this gap: payments for environmental
The challenge of alleviating poverty and improving living conditions for
the poorest populations is a formidable one. It is increasingly apparent

industry, much of the time the two meanings overlap. But lower Manhattan
is by no means the totality of the US wholesale financial-services
industry, and so sometimes the term embraces other locations and institutions....
