Example text

Economics provides a powerful theory on why environmental assets are degraded. This theoretical framework also provides powerful insights on what are likely to be the most effective policies for addressing these problems. Chapter 3: Environmental management as development strategy. It is all too easy to become obsessed by environment as a problem rather than a dynamic for positive development.
