The course will cover economic issues underlying sustainable development, externalities and market failure, policy instruments, non-market valuation, poverty-environment interactions, and natural resource use and pollution management. Participants will be exposed to basic theoretical issues and economic tools and methodologies for analyzing environmental problems in developing countries.
