Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to show that for monitoring and policy analysis purposes, social and environmental indicators must be nested into an accounting framework. In the present work the Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) framework is used, because of its flexibility, among other things regarding the inclusion of non-monetary data, such as social and environmental indicators. The main thrust of the paper is methodological. As until now experiences with the compilation of extended SAMs, in particular for developing countries, appear to be rather limited, the paper aims at adding to these experiences through the construction of an extended SAM for Bolivia for the year 1989.
