Environmental Economics in Sevilla

Environmental economics is about trade-offs involving the economy and the environment, and it is not concerned with what is right or wrong. It analyzes ways of achieving the socially desirable level of environmental protection, and by how much the society is willing to reduce production and consumption for certain level of protection.


Students will have an opportunity to learn about the impact of U.S. and European climate policies on the production, consumption, and trade in goods and services, as well as the environmental impact of current economic patterns, since the economic decisions of governments, firms, and households affect climate change through changes in production, consumption and transport related emissions. There will be an emphasis on environmental policies in the European countries, including Spain, that address the issue of climate change by reducing emissions using various economic instruments and encouraging renewable energy generation based on growing demand for geothermal, solar, and wind power.
