The RFF Reader in Environmental and Resource Management
This volume seeks to provide teachers and students, the public policy community and informed citizens with a broader and deeper perspective on natural resources and the environment. Much of the material in the reader comes from Resources, the Resources for the Future quarterly publication. Wallace E. Oates has supplemented this with other important RFF work in climate change and sustainability. He has assembled many of the most requested articles to emerge from RFF. The book includes sections on key environmental topics such as benefit-cost analysis, environmental regulation and environmental justice. There is a section devoted to environmental problems in developing nations and transitional economies. Natural resource topics include resource management, biodiversity, and sustainable development. The articles address many difficult public policy questions, such as: does environmental policy conflict with economic growth; and when is a life too costly to save? Among the other issues addressed are emissions trading, environmental damage assessment, Superfund, biodiversity, forest management, waste-facility siting, and sustainable agriculture.
