Introduction to Environmental Economics by Nick Hanley (Professor of Environmental and One Health Economics, Professor of Environmental and One Health Economics, University of Glasgow)

Clearly written, global in approach, and theoretically broad-minded, this text is an ideal introduction to environmental economics.

They then use the fundamental concepts to explore and assess current and potential policy responses to some of the major environmental issues of our time. Examples are drawn from all over the world and include such vital issues as climate change, natural resource use, waste management, water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. The text is also accompanied by the following online resources: For students: Links to news stories and organizations Exercises For lecturers: PowerPoint slides Solutions to exercises Graphs from the book List of Discussion Questions
