The subdivision of Resource and Environmental Economics aims at developing professional capacities, based on social science knowledge, to confront a wide variety of problems related to food, natural resources and environment in the increasingly complex society that we live in. Our program is designed to develop skills required for: planning and evaluation of economic projects, formulation of policies in environmental and natural resource management, and practical problem solving more generally in local, national and international contexts. Building on a solid foundation in economic theory and quantitative analytic methods, students can chose their own specialized study areas such as agricultural policy, regional resource management, valuation of non-market goods and services, and international development.
