Consevation Economics & Policy

Conservation Economics & Policy

Conservation economics is concerned with the costs and benefits of conserving nature. In this seminar, we will lean about fundamental principles of ecology and economics and how these can be applied to the conservation of nature for the benefit of wildlife and people. Conservation policies – international, regional, national, or local – are sets of ideas or plans used as a basis for making decisions about the conservation of nature.

The seminar includes lectures, group work, reading, viewing, and assignments.
