Overview of Biodiversity in the Balance: Land Use, National Development and Global Welfare

"Biodiversity in the Balance summarises the scientific and economic debate and highlights disagreements about the definitions of biodiversity management objectives. The author goes on to develop an original analytical treatment of the incremental cost financing mechanisms adopted by the Convention on Biological Diversity. Significantly, he undertakes a microeconomic study of land use change in a biosphere reserve in South-East Mexico. Based on an original data set, the author presents a detailed modelling exercise of resource and land use choices at the individual farm level with related projections of the impact of both community and regional levels. Techniques used include multi-period linear programming and dynamic stock-flow simulation. The book concludes by addressing policy implications and options for future research." This book will be of interest to graduate students, researchers and professionals in a variety of disciplines including economic, natural resource studies, social studies, geography and land planning. The book will also be of value to the large environmental NGO community.

Synopsis of Biodiversity in the Balance: Land Use, National Development and Global Welfare

An economist for the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance and for the World Bank addresses whether there are options that can conserve the benefits of biodiversity without compromising the benefits of development. He delves into such questions as how much land may be allocated to productive uses without compromising the ability of biodiversity to contribute to human welfare, whether the development process will continue to exert pressure on biodiversity or will generate incentives for its sustainable use, and whether the international community has a role in facilitating the transition toward sustainability.
