Irene Ring, Bernd Klauer, Frank Watzold, Bengt A. Mansson, Ufz Summer SchoolISBN: 3790812331;
This book presents interdisciplinary approaches towards achieving regional sustainability. The relevance of interdisciplinary research and its consequences for economic research into the environment are elaborated, and new approaches are developed to integrate knowledge from ecological and social sciences into economic research. Regional Sustainability includes the development of theoretical concepts as well as applied regional case studies relating to nature conservation and agricultural policies, coastal management and air pollution problems. Centred around the themes of decision-making processes, modelling as support for policy analysis and the evaluation of policies, it successfully addresses problems facing researchers and policy-makers in the context of regional sustainable development. The book pays special attention to human behaviour and stakeholders in decision-making processes, and contributes to the transition from ecological research to socio-ecological economics.
