There are numerous environmental impacts, particularly non-market benefits, that are still considered to be non-quantifiable and excluded in the decision making process in many developing countries. The paper discusses the importance of incorporating such benefits in the policy-making dynamics. Using examples from Bangladesh, it demonstrates how a failure to properly account for the values of environmental resources has resulted in decisions that have had negative implications for the environment and society.
