PADM-5618: Environmental and Ecological Economics

DescriptionThis is an introduction to the principles and approaches of environmental and ecological economics and their applications to contemporary public policy challenges. We will examine the theoretical underpinnings of environmental and ecological economics and identify similarities and differences. The links between economic growth and the environment, as well as sustainability, equity and efficiency principles will be evaluated from both frameworks. In addition the course will introduce students to methods of environmental valuation and how to assess the significance of ecosystems and water quality. Students will explore how policy objectives are determined and how various policy and regulatory instruments can be utilized to implement targets and objectives. Throughout the course we will make reference to current case studies of environmental policies and pollution control programmes. At the end of the course students will present drafts of their own term paper analysis on a topic related to the course material.
