What is studied in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics?
Environmental awareness is crucial in times of global warming. This area promotes development strategies based on the efficient use of renewable and non-renewable resources; it proposes policy recommendations on the issue of climate change; and it recognizes potential impacts on the environment to implement an adequate disaster risk management.
Through its research and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in which it participates since the year 2000, this area provides recommendations for fostering sustainable and competitive economic activities in industries such as forestry and fishery, among others.
From here, the Boletín Economía y Ambiente (“Economy and Environment Bulletin”) is issued, which addresses important matters such as the state of natural resources, public investment, and environmental policy frameworks.
