Environmental Economics

Spring 2019

Taught By: David Howell

Section: A

CRN: 4664

Credits: 3

The objective of this graduate-level environmental economics course is for students to be able to use economic concepts to assess environmental problems and policy design. The course will provide the theory and analytical tools for addressing environmental externalities, valuation of natural resources and environmental services, and design of effective, efficient and equitable environmental policies. The course will begin with an overview of economic principles (market failure, externalities, public goods, valuation, etc.), continuing into the application of economic incentives and instruments relevant in the environmental context (regulation, pollution taxes, emissions trading, etc.). There will also be some exploration of other environmental economic theories and approaches (ecological economics, natural capital accounting, and green growth). The economics of addressing global environmental challenges like climate change will also be considered, as will the intersection between economic globalization and the global environment. Students will apply environmental economics theory and analytical tools to particular real-world case studies and problems, including in different types of countries at different levels of development. This is an advanced course. Basic knowledge of economics is required. Prerequisite NURP 5001 Economics for Management and Public Policy or equivalent level course.
