Abstract:

This report seeks to impart knowledge to policymakers and administrators of how to approach the measurement and valuation of environmental elements within development projects. It illustrates the issues in the context of particular projects. It also explains why some projects are environmental " successes " and other are " failures " . Finally, it is hoped that it will provide pointers to policymakers on how to frame projects so that environmental damage is minimized and sustainable development ensured. The theme of " sustainable development " is introduced and discussed in terms of development policy, programs, and projects. The salient issues dealt with in the subsequent case studies, including the pricing of environmental impact, are examined. The case studies are analyzed with particular attention to three factors crucial to environmental success: appropriate technology, community involvement, and adequate monitoring. The program of continuous maize cropping in the Northern Province of Zambia and the impl.
