Environmental and Natural Resource EconomicsEnvironmental and Natural Resource Economics focuses on addressing human interactions with natural systems. At UNM, out studies are transdisciplinary, combining, for example, economics with biology, hydrology, chemistry, and engineering.
We address some of the most pressing problems in the world and in the state of New Mexico including (but not limited to) climate change, drought, forest fires, water and water quality, energy, environmental health, and invasive species.
Our goals are not only to understand the impact of humans and their economic pursuits on the natural world, but also to provide policymakers with improved information with which to develop management policies that provide economic opportunity and long-term environmental and resource viability.
