Environmental economics


Environmental economics is a sub-field of economics concerned with environmental issues. It has become a widely studied subject due to growing environmental concerns in the twenty-first century. Economic activity affects the environment in diverse ways. In producing and consuming goods and services, societies draw materials and energy from the environment, adversely affecting the diversity of flora and fauna inhabiting both land and water. Some of these modifications of our natural environment are intentional, such as those achieved through processes of agriculture, urbanization, and the development of social infrastructures, such as roads, factories, dams, and power plants. Other environmental impacts are incidental and most often an unintentional by-product of economic activity. This includes the discharge of waste from industry and domestic living and the spill-over effect of urbanization and population growth.   

Environmental Economics, undertakes theoretical or empirical studies of the economic effects of national or local environmental policies around the world, Particular issues include the costs and benefits of alternative environmental policies to deal with air pollution, water quality, toxic substances, solid waste, and global warming. 

This resource guide, prepared by the library staff aims to list useful sources of information on the subject that are available in JGU Library and elsewhere, both in print and electronic forms. It also includes important links to useful free & open access web resources. Besides, the resources guide also include resources of interest to those who teach Environmental Economics.

EPA Environmental Economics Postdoctoral Research Opportunity : This research opportunity is currently available at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), Center for Environmental Measurement & Modeling (CEMM), Watershed & Ecosystem Characterization Division (WECD) located in Cincinnati, Ohio. EPA ORD recently reorganized and this is the newly named Center. This was formerly in the National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL). This research project is to conduct an analysis of the economic impacts of contaminated sites, brownfields remediation, and revitalization. Under the guidance of a mentor, the research participant may be involved in the following activities:  

  1. Analyzing economic benefit surrounding community might realize from contaminated site remediation, restoration, and revitalization efforts using non-market valuation methods (revealed preference approaches such as hedonic pricing). In addition, other economic impacts may also be analyzed such as impacts on employment, income, poverty, and local tax  
  2. Evaluating the negative economic impacts of contaminated brownfields, identifying the economic benefits of site cleanup/remediation, and the impact of brownfields redevelopment, in selected urban areas so as to participate in analyzing benefit-cost of investments in brownfields remediation.
