Blurb/Shorttext:
The purpose of this book is to develop and critically examine the relationship between brownfields regeneration and remediation projects and the achievement of environmental and socio- economic benefits, adopting a sustainable development perspective. The rationale underpinning this research is that a sustainable environment cannot be achieved without re-integrating brownfields sites into the natural environment and their social and economic systems, thus recovering the natural functions of the soil together with the economic role of the site. Specifically, this book examines and values the public health benefits for a reduction of the risk of dying due to exposure to hazardous substances for people living near contaminated sites in Italy. An original contribution of this work is the estimation of the value of statistical life for the Italian population, that is, the rate at which individuals are prepared to give up a fraction of their income in exchange for a reduction in a fatality risk. The VSL is an important factor in assessing health benefits of a given environmental policy.
