EP 604 Environmental and Ecological Economics

Course Description: It is widely recognized that most environmental problems, whether small-scale or global, are the result of a complex interaction of natural processes with economic forces and decisions. This course provides graduates with a sound theoretical base and practical appreciation of the concepts and methods of environmental and natural resource economics relevant to policy decisions and research.

This course will provide an understanding of both perspectives
