Synopsis

The Directorate-General for the Environment of the Dutch government is interested in information about the economic impact of environmental protection policies. A first step in producing such information is to generate estimates of the macro-economic impact of policies in the area of acidification, eutrophication and dessication directed at forests in the Netherlands. The feasibility of producing reliable estimates is assessed in the present report. The conclusion of this study is that it is quite possible to generate a quantitative assessment of the macro-economic impact of environmental policies for forests in the Netherlands. The method described and evaluated in the report produces a partial estimate of the total benefits of environmental policies. Benefits in areas such as agriculture, monuments, health and other ecosystems than forests have not been addressed in this study.
