Environmental and Natural Resource Economics is the best-selling text for this course, offering a policy-oriented approach and introducing economic theory in the context of debates and empirical work from the field. Students leave the course with a global perspective of both environmental and natural resource economics. Key features include:
- Extensive coverage of the major issues including climate change, pollution, sustainable development, and environmental justice.
- Dedicated chapters on a full range of resources including water, land, forests, fisheries, and recyclables.
- Introductions to the theory and method of environmental economics including externalities, benefit-cost analysis, valuation methods, and ecosystem goods and services.
- Boxed case studies and 'Debates' throughout the text which highlight global examples and major talking points.
The text is fully supported with end-of-chapter summaries, discussion questions, and self-test exercises in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics and multiple-choice questions, simulations, references, slides, and an instructor's manual on the Companion Website.
