Lessons Learned from Environmental Accounting: Findings from Nine Case Studies
Environmental accounting – the modification of the national income accounts to take into consideration the economic role of the environment – has grown in importance over the past ten years. However, many countries have not yet implemented such accounts, and there is much controversy about whether and how to do so. This paper aims to shed light on this situation through nine country case studies: Norway, The Netherlands, Sweden, France, Canada, The Philippines, Namibia, Germany, and the United States.
