OECD publication: Economic Valuation of Environmental Health Risks to Children

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development issued a new publication in February 2006 on the economic aspects of environmental health problems in children.

Economic Valuation of Environmental Health Risks to Children contains an in depth analysis of the main methodological difficulties associated with estimating the social value of a reduction in risk to children. Questions such as how to elicit children’s preferences, what valuation methodology and benefit measure to choose, how to discount benefits to children’s health, and how to account for economic uncertainties in this specific context of economic valuation will be systematically examined in order to define key policy implications and to pave the way for further research.
