This publication demonstrates that natural resources can contribute to growth, employment, exports and fiscal revenues in low-income countries, where natural capital constitutes a quarter of total wealth. It highlights the importance of policies encouraging the sustainable management of these resources. Moreover, it emphasises the need to address the political challenges of natural-resource management for long-term pro-poor economic growth. Part I provides an overview of the economics and politics of natural resources. It describes the unique features of natural resources and resulting management challenges, the role of sustainable natural resource management in supporting pro-poor growth, and the politics and governance of natural resources. It then offers recommendations for policy makers on how to support the approaches advocated in the paper. Part II examines these issues with respect to seven specific natural-resource sectors: fisheries, forests, wildlife and ecotourism, soil productivity, water security, minerals and renewable energy.

Wetlands are lands where saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities living in the soil and on its surface. Wetlands vary widely because of regional and local differences in soils, topography, climate, hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation, and other factors, including human disturbance. Indeed, wetlands are found from the tundra to the tropics and on every continent except Antarctica. This book focuses on international wetlands.

Author: Edward A. Fitzgerald
This study examines the role of the courts in the public policy process by analyzing the federal-state conflicts over offshore energy development—known as the Seaweed Rebellion—from the Roosevelt through Clinton administrations. Dr. Edward A. Fitzgerald posits that the courts play an important role interpreting statutes and overseeing administrative actions to ensure 'that important legislative purposes, heralded in the halls of Congress, are not lost or misdirected in the vast hallways of the federal bureaucracy.' He concludes that the court's interpretations and deference towards executive decisions undermined the important statutory role of the coastal states, decreased environment protection, and has caused a breakdown in the program of outer continental shelf energy development.
|Takings Litigation Handbook : Defending Takings Challenges to Land Use Regulations
Lowest used price: $100.00
List price: $49.95
Author: Timothy J. Dowling
No government attorney, land use planner, or other local official can effectively protect their community from harmful land use without a working knowledge of takings law. Developers and other landowners increasingly are attempting to use takings litigation -- or the mere threat of takings litigation -- to convince government agencies to relax or abandon vital protections for our neighborhoods and natural environment.
The Takings Litigation Handbook begins with practical suggestions for the development of a proper record, obtaining insurance coverage, and filing preliminary motions. It then discusses in detail the procedural and substantive defenses that should enable the local government to prevail in takings cases. It finally addresses the issue of calculating damages in the unlikely event that liability for a taking has been found. It is the first ever 'soup to nuts' Handbook for defending land use regulations from takings challenges.
