Abstract

The paper reviews the U.S. experience in using decision models to support environmental policy making. Cost benefit and cost effectiveness are examined in the context of efficiency and equity considerations. Risk assessment and risk benefit analysis is then reviewed in the same framework. A mathematical programming approach to environmental management and industrial efficiency is outlined as a possible alternative to proposed decision support procedures related to monitoring of the pollution reduction progress. © 1993.
