Abstract

The main theme of this conference was ‘Urbanisation and Environment’ and it followed close on the heels of the U.N. Conference on the Environment held in Stockholm. However, it would be misleading to pretend that the collected papers presented at this conference represented an organised attempt by economists to become involved in the present controversy surrounding the relationship between man and the environment. Nor should they be interpreted as a definitive statement of the role the economist feels he can, and should, play in managing the environment. Rather, it must be interpreted as a series of separate statements linked by the common themes of Urbanisation and Environment.
