dc.description.abstractThe use of macroeconomic indicators based on the traditional system of national accounts for planning purposes may result in development strategies which are neither environmentally sound nor sustainable, mainly because these indicators do not account for the depletion of natural resources and losses in environmental quality due to social and economic activities. A new system of environmental and economic accounting is discussed, highlighting some of the problems of implementing such a model in Papua New Guinea.
