Summary

Increasing scarcity of land and the consequential strengthening of policy targets pertaining to waste disposal, recovery and generation, has generated a need for empirical analyses that will aid policy effectiveness, while taking into account the relevance of specific regional features and the impact of a comprehensive set of socio-economic drivers. New strands of microeconomic and macroeconomic analyses inspired by the Environmental Kuznets curve literature have emerged during the past years, enlarging the previously heavy managerial focus to bring in wider economic considerations, and complementing the historically stronger literature on the valuation of waste related externalities. The book aims to provide guidelines for policymakers in gathering contributions of both a theoretical and empirical nature that cover and address waste management and disposal issues, embedding them in spatial, systemic and trade related frameworks.
