nomics, so that they can understand economists' contributions to policy debates, and the strengths and weaknesses of the economic approach to environmental policy. Course Description : Economics provides a framework for thinking about environmental policy choices, and some distinctive insights what have had a major inﬂuence on policy in recent years. This course provides an overview of the economic approach to key environmental policy issues, including air pollution, climate change, and biodiversity, and an assessment of the merits of different policy interventions, comparing conventional regulation and market mechanisms such as emissions trading and taxation. Policy case studies examine in detail the experience of some recent policy innovations, and the contribution that economics can make to better policy assessment. Exposition is non-technical, and the course should be accessible to students with little previous economics as well as those with a more extensive grounding in the discipline.
