  Natural Resource Accounting for Thailand’s Forests: A Theoretical Framework Alexandra Lai I. INTRODUCTION Thailand is endowed with abundant natural resources and a varied topography and climate. These natural assets have been exploited in Thailand to further economic development, as has been the case in most countries fortunate Accounting, and in , the SEEA Central Framework was published (Obst, Hein, & Edens, ; United Nations et al., ). Consistent and compatible with SEEA, guidance on resource-specific Our conceptual framework emphasizes the connectivity of humans and the ecosystems in which they are embedded, and we define a fishing community as a type of Natural Resource Community (NRC) – a population of individuals whose primary cultural existence depends upon the use of renewable natural resources (Dyer et al. ; Dyer and McGoodwin ). The framework provides the FASB with a foundation for setting standards and concepts to use as tools for resolving accounting and reporting questions. The FASB staff is guided by pertinent concepts that might provide guidance in developing its analysis of issues for consideration by the FASB, as well as in making its recommendations to the FASB  › Projects.

Natural resource exploitation is an anticipated outcome following a long period of low-impact preindustrial human use (Fig. ).Exploitation of US rangelands, prompted by the perception of limitless open-access resources, did occur in response to excessive livestock grazing in   Conceptual Framework) establishes the concepts that are to be applied in developing International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSASs) and Recommended Practice Guidelines (RPGs) applicable to the preparation and presentation of /publications/files/ Timeline of major events and conceptual advances that have contributed to development of the rangeland system framework described in this chapter and throughout the entire book. The relative rate There has long been interest in integrating the value of environmental stocks and flows into standard measures of economic activity and wealth, in particular through the development of adjusted measures of GDP and extended measures of national wealth. This paper examines how the valuation of ecosystem services and ecosystem assets can be undertaken in an integrated national accounting ://

The emergence of demand for this information makes the development of ecological accounting possible. Yet, most current research on ecological accounting focuses on two aspects: (1) the theoretical aspect, including background
