This course familiarizes students with the principles of
environmental economics, finance, and cost-benefit analysis. The
incentive effects of environmental policy design are assessed. Policy
instruments include tradeable permits, emissions taxes, deposit-
refund systems, pollution prevention programs, and voluntary
agreements. Project appraisal techniques are then developed and
applied to specific case evaluations.
