Title Estimating the costs of environmental degradation
Description This manual is the result of several studies undertaken by the Middle East and North Africa 
Department. The work focused on estimating the monetary value of environmental 
degradation in eight countries in the region. The manual was used to deliver training 
courses in Cairo (2002), Beirut (2003) and Marrakech (2004). The decision to translate 
the manual into Arabic was taken to help compensate for the relative lack of environmental 
economics literature in that language.
