Economics of Coastal and Marine Environments
The course provides a theoretical framework and methodological tools for understanding the relationship between the human economy and the natural world, focusing on coastal and marine areas. Besides elements of standard economic analysis (supply and demand, welfare economics, market failures, resource allocation over time, cost-benefit analysis, regression analysis, non-market valuation and conservation economics), the course introduces elements of interdisciplinary approaches such as ecological economics models. The class will focus on the application of theoretical perspectives to a diversity of resources and environmental issues, in an attempt to identify possible solutions to overexploitation of renewable and non-renewable resources.
