This project aims to address two major problems. The first is a shortage of data on the major impacts to human health, wellbeing and the economy of the environmental damage caused by economic activity. This data shortage limits the ability of policymakers to identify the most appropriate environmental policies. The second major problem to be addresses is related to the framework of economic and environmental reporting that indicates to policymakers and the general public the success of the economy. The existing environmental accounting frameworks have been criticised for a number of reasons, and in particular because they do not place sufficient weight on sustainability concerns. This project will develop and apply an environmental accounting fra
mework that addresses these concerns.
