  • On the Dynamics of Recycling and Natural Resources

    We study the dynamic impact of recycling through its effect on the production set of the economy and its relationship with natural resources. The contribution of renewable and recyclable resources for sustainability is studied. Although in the short run recycling may alleviate resource scarcity, in the long run it is not enough to compensate for the exhaustibility of non-renewable resources and ...

  • Building local democracy through natural resource interventions

    This policy brief provides natural resource policy makers and practitioners with an approach for evaluating how their policies and projects can support the emergence and consolidation of local democracy. In practice, everything but democratic decentralization has taken place in the name of ‘democratic decentralization’ reforms: privatization, administrative deconcentration, NGOization, selective ...

  • Pollution, natural resource and economic growth: an econometric analysis

    Theoretical arguments imply that an inverted U-shaped relationship may be quite plausible. It is still not clear from the empirical literature whether the relationship of income and environmental degradation is linear or inverted U-shaped. This paper utilises a more global representative sample, than previous EKC studies, and re-evaluates the environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) of sulphur dioxide, ...

  • How well are resource prices likely to serve as indicators of natural resource scarcity?

    It is generally believed that when a resource becomes increasingly scarce, a shadow is automatically cast in the form of a higher market price. The higher price induces substitution towards more abundant resources and the development of resource-saving technological progress. A growing number of ecological economists argue that, while resource prices adequately reflect the relative scarcity of ...

  • Encouraging Americans to Reuse, Recycle, and Conserve Natural Resources

    When Congress passed the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) in 1976, it charged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with ensuring the safe disposal and management of municipal and industrial waste, and it broadly championed a new ethic of resource conservation. During the first two decades of RCRA, EPA, in partnership with the states, focused primarily on establishing a ...

  • From Conflict to Peacebuilding - The role of natural resources and the environment

    Since 1990 at least eighteen violent conflicts have been fuelled by the exploitation of natural resources. In fact, recent research suggests that over the last sixty years at least forty percent of all intrastate conflicts have a link to natural resources. Civil wars such as those in Liberia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo have centred on “high-value” resources like timber, diamonds, ...

  • Technical Evaluation of Natural Resource Damage Assessments (NRDA) of Groundwater Resources

    Abstract To support a Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) for groundwater resources impacted by oil or hazardous substances, careful technical evaluation is required to define the nature and volume of the affected groundwater zone and the associated impact on the potential services provided by the affected aquifer and other interconnected water resources. Relative to the baseline ...

  • How Recycling Plastic Helps To Save The Environment And Natural Resources

    We all have recycling boxes that sit next to our wheelie bins and often there is a public recycling point in a car-park nearby.  Some of us have become recycling experts and recycle almost 100% of their household waste, while the vast majority of us are just beginning to get involved in recycling.  Budget cuts have resulted in household waste being collected once a fortnight with a ...
