About the EPAT Project

The Environmental and Natural Resources Policy and Training Project ended in 
December 1995.  However, all 50 publications about environmental policy are 
available at this site.

As all hard copies have been distributed to international policymakers 
abroad, I urge you to access the papers on the Internet.  You can download 
all or part of each document or use key word searches.  The topics include:

Energy, Industry, and the Urban Environment 
Forestry and Watershed Management
Population and the Environment
Resource Pricing and Institutions

I hope these documents will be useful to you in your important work.
