Environmental economics is playing an increasingly central
role in understanding the causes of, and designing policy
solutions to, contemporary environmental and resource
problems. It has been instrumental in informing policy
across the world, for example in the creation of markets
for pollutants such as carbon, or the design of new
instruments for the conservation of ecosystem services. Students gain a well'developed
understanding of environmental and resource economics,
its conceptual foundations and practical tools of analysis
and will also learn to apply these concepts and methods
to the analysis, appraisal and valuation of a wide range of
environmental problems and policies.
