London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

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.
