In this book, the first of two volumes, the authors provide detailed case studies of valuation techniques that have been used in developing countries. They demonstrate that valuation works and that it can yield significant insights into policy-relevant issues regarding conservation and economic development. The authors address a whole range of environmental issues under the broad themes of water and air quality, biological diversity and forest functions. The economic approaches covered include contingent valuation, hedonic property prices, travel cost methodologies and benefits transfer.

This chapter examines the development of the Structural Funds in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland from 1988 to 2015. It examines the evolution of strategies in the two countries as they have refocused from an emphasis on physical infrastructure towards business development and innovation. Both countries have also experienced some changes in regional governance with the introduction of a regional tier of economic planning in Ireland, specifically to meet the needs of the Structural Funds, and a complex process of experimentation with devolution in the UK. Yet despite the parallel developments in governance and orientation, Ireland has been able to use the funds consistently and more successfully to support a period of rapid growth, whilst the UK, and England in particular, has struggled to achieve consistency of strategy in the face of frequent shifts in regional governance.
