Environmental Economics and Climate Change

The course covers understanding the causes of, and designing policy solutions to, contemporary environmental problems. Students study human-induced climate change. Economic analyses have been used to determine the net costs and benefits of different policy scenarios, to better understand how to achieve and sustain international co-operation, and to evaluate the efficiency of different environmental policy instruments. The programme covers market creation such as for carbon, or the design of new interventions such as payments for ecosystem services (PES). In these, and across a wide range of other issues, from biodiversity and ecosystem loss, air pollution to, more broadly, the link between the environment and sustainable economic development, the theory and applied tools of environmental economics are uniquely placed to inform and guide decision-makers in addressing environmental challenges.
