Environment and Development
Instructor: Filippo Randelli
The aim of this course is to provide students with tools to analyse in an integrated manner environmental aspects of economic, social and political development in developed and developing countries at both micro and macro levels. Economic expertise complemented with environmental analysis is increasingly appreciated by public and private sector organizations at local and international levels. This course will enable students to systematically analyse environmental issues and to cooperate in the planning and decision making process implied by the sustainable development objectives of private and public agents in developed and developing countries.
The course makes references to a wide range of concrete geographical contexts and scenarios at the national and international level, looking at territories as a whole as well as at single material, energy and environmental resources.
