This publication examines a number of complex issues facing policy makers in Australia, such as climate change and natural resource management, and illustrates how environmental accounts can be used to further improve the decision-making process. It also includes a range of accounts that highlight the various interactions between the environment and economy. These accounts are based on the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting which was elevated to an international statistical standard in early 2012.
