Integrating Environment and Economy provides a detailed and accessible examination of the policies and practice associated with local and regional strategies for integrating economic development and environmental management. Using the idea of ecological modernization as its conceptual framework this book considers how integrated approaches to policy might be developed and whether these integrated approaches enable economic and social activities to support rather than undermine the realization of environmental objectives.
