The main objective of the Special Conference of the International Association for Research in Income and Wealth (IARIW) on which this book is based was to take stock of concrete experiences in integrated environmental and economic accounting. Such an assessment was believed to cut through some of the mantras of theories and argumentation repeatedly seen and heard in publications and expert group meetings. As to be expected, this objective was only partially achieved. A number of commonalities did emerge from the different case studies and theoretical contributions. They included a consensus on using the national accounts system as the basic framework for environmental accounting, the use of certain valuations, notably net-pricing of natural resources and maintenance costing of environmental degradation, and the need to examine more systematically the analytical and policy uses of the accounting results.
