Remediation Costs (RC) : protection measures How much does it cost to decrease air pollution so that the damages vanish? DIC/RC Ratios : decision-making tools Investing 1 euro in remediation, how much damages are avoided? Operating where the remediation is the more efficient. Framework of analysis

© Ecosys Recommendations Developping of information (Economic, Income distribution, Environment, Inefficiencies) Strengthen existing institutions Statistical framework in the national accounting system for integrating environmental information in the main performance indicators Increase budget devoted to environmental protection and the better management of natural resources Prioritizing expenditures Tax increase Increasing competencies and knowledge Priorities for actions The continuation of the development of water-related infrastructures Programs that monitor agriculture, forestry and fishery
Recommendations Reforming and implementing policies is necessary Specify budget allocation in national development strategy and macro-economic policy Process of consultation of Land and Forest acts have to be clarify Environmentally-related policies have to be better coordinated Greater institutional coordination around sustainable environment management Controlling the exploration and use of the country natural resources Agriculture : productivity enhancing methods have to monitored to consider their environmental consequences +sustainable water-use strategies Financing mechanisms Awareness campaigns Financial services Maradan| © Ecosys
