CHAPTER 8: INTEGRATING ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT IN DECISION-MAKING

This chapter addresses the importance of integrating environmental factors into policy-making, law, economic instruments and national accounting. Chapter 8 was completed in New York at PrepCom IV and, thus, no discussion was necessary in Rio. This chapter has four programme areas: Integrating environment and development at the policy, planning and management levels; Providing an effective legal and regulatory framework; Making effective use of economic instruments and market and other incentives; and Establishing systems for environmental accounting.
