The book "Economics of Natural Assets" is significant. Natural assets include both ‎environmental sources and sinks. "Sources" are stocks of natural raw materials, renewable and ‎non-renewable, including forests, fisheries, soil, and minerals. "Sinks" are the capacities of ‎environmental media such as air and water to absorb and decompose waste from production ‎and consumption. This book refers to the importance and value of natural assets. The book on valuing natural assets is designed to reach a broad audience. The intention is ‎to engage policy-makers, economists, and scientists worldwide and encourage those involved ‎in policy appraisals and decision-making to better account for the value of natural assets. ‎Natural Assets Economics provides a set of steps that can be applied to any policy appraisal ‎context, including a checklist of ecosystem services and approaches to assessing values. Some ‎chapters necessarily have a more technical bias. However, introductions are provided at the ‎beginning of each chapter to present the key points in a non-technical manner.
