Reviews

"Impressively informative, exceptional in organization and presentation, Green Growth That Works: Natural Capital Policy and Finance Mechanisms Around the World is an extraordinary addition to both community and academic library Contemporary Business Economics collections in general, and Environmental Economics supplemental studies reading lists in particular."-- "Midwest Book Review"

"Green Growth that Works is an excellent sourcebook of ideas and demonstrates that the acquisition of natural capital through inclusive and life-enhancing strategies is no longer theory but a real possibility. The writing is accessible, and reference lists at the end of each chapter can further guide readers who are unfamiliar with the philosophy and science of ecosystem assessment. This book should be added to the toolkit of anyone directly involved in natural resources policy."-- "Plant Science Bulletin"

"Green Growth That Works portrays visionary projects from around the world that demonstrate powerful outcomes of communities, governments, and financial institutions working with nature to develop infrastructure thoughtfully through pioneering plans, policies, and investments."--Jane Lubchenco, Distinguished University Professor, Oregon State University; former Administrator, NOAA
