The sustainable use of natural resources in developing countries



The sustainable use of natural resources in developing countries



Discussion Paper, Department of Economics, University College, University of London (86-15): 27



The paper outlines some of the issues arising from natural resource degradation (NRD) in developing countries. The severity and causes of NRD (overpopulation, unequal access to land) are examined and incentives needed to counteract it (price policy, fiscal incentives etc.) are suggested. It is concluded that the natural environment is part of the process of economic development and that resource degradation is a means of retarding that development.
