This book presents leading-edge research in environmental-economic modelling currently being undertaken in Scandinavia. There is a strong economic modelling tradition in Scandinavia and Scandinavian countries are well known for their interest in environmental questions. This combination has produced fruitful results. Special attention is given to modelling in the agricultural, transport and energy sectors. Interaction between the economy and the environment are examined at both national and regional levels.
