Moreover, the authors explore the regulations that deine the protection, management, and conservation of natural values and goods in Serbia, with a purpose of evaluating opportunities for development and implementation of Environmental Accounting (EA). EA is still at an early stage of development, especially from the standpoint of its incorporation into the developed standard models of company accounting. There still exist several unexplored problems to be solved at the level of national accounts, such as the expression of environmental damage, resource consumption, sustainable use of natural capital, evaluating environmental beneits, and free gifts of nature. The chapter is completed with a case study based on an empirical study in the ield of environmental management in one protected area in Serbia, Zasavica.
