    Cote d’Ivoire expects to put in place a system of green national accounting that would take into account the environmental costs of development and reflect the use of precious depletable natural resources in the process of generating national income. Economists estimate gross domestic product (GDP) as a broad measure of national income, while net domestic product (NDP) accounts for the use of physical capital. But as yet, we have not generally accepted system accounting for the use of natural capital. Economists all over the world have been at work for quite some time on developing a system of green national accounting.
