About this book

An understanding of economics is vital to any understanding of why environmental problems occur and what best to do about them. This book provides an introduction to the subject of environmental economics without assuming any in-depth prior knowledge of economics. Part one explains the fundamental economic concepts. Part two uses these concepts in understanding and developing policy responses to some of the major environmental issues of our time. Examples are drawn from all over the world and include such vital issues as climate change, water pollution, and loss of biodiversity.

"Introduction to Environmental Economics" examines both a wide range of environmental case studies and also assesses a variety of economic theories and their approach to environmental issues. Clearly written, global in approach, and theoretically broad-minded, this text is an ideal introduction both to the study of environmental economics and to the question of how economics can provide tools for improving our environment.

New to this second edition:

- Substantial revision of existing chapters such as economics of climate change and biodiversity
- Greater focus on environmental policy and management links and links to policy issues which have recently emerged
- Introduction of Online Resource Centre with weblinks and exercises for students, and solutions to exercises in the text, PowerPoint slides, and graphs from the book for lecturers
