Integrating natural science with economic expertise
The specialisation in Environmental Economics and Natural Resources aims at integrating knowledge and insights from natural sciences and technology with economic expertise. The programme focuses on the information and methods needed for assessing impacts, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of policy options which is needed to improve environmental decision making.
Much of our research focuses on the application of modeling approaches such as computable general equilibrium models (CGE), bio-economic and spatial models, and game theoretic models for analysing real world environmental or resource problems. Methodological and applied research is carried out in the areas of environmental valuation, natural resource management, international environmental agreements and institutional economics.
