Environmental Sustainability
  • DBA shows that what makes economic sense usually makes environmental sense; the biggest sources of environmental degradation are government subsidies and market distortions that under-price natural resources;

  • DBA teams strongly advance policies and laws that halt degradation of the natural environment;
    We have contributed to research into mitigation of pollution caused by inefficient use of gas, coal and liquid fuels; in every case appropriate pricing will help overcome the worst of excesses of subsidy fuelled development;

  • DBA led attempts to reduce the loss of forest cover in five Asian countries by promoting sustainable pricing irreplaceable natural hardwood species at levels that reflect their true values to make husbanding the resource worthwhile;  the removal of monopolies subsidies and economically sensible regimes of pricing natural resources, are essential elements of a solution;
