The economywide policy reform programs that have been undertaken in
developing countries in recent years often address macroeconomic
problems with little or no regard for their environmental impact, be it
positive or negative. This book and its companion volume of case
studies demonstrate that there are significant payoffs from a greater
understanding of such impacts.
The case studies, summarized in Volume I and presented in full in
Volume II, provide empirical evidence of the links between
macroeconomic policies and the environment and reflect a wide range of
country situations and environmental problems: air pollution issues in
Poland and Sri Lanka; deforestation and land degradation in Costa Rica;
migration and deforestation in the Philippines; overgrazing of
agricultural lands in Tunisia; overcultivation in Ghana; water resource
depletion in Morocco; and wildlife management in Zimbabwe. The volumes
also show the variety of analytical methods used to identify the
linkages between policy actions and their environmental impacts.
