Environmental issues such as pollution, climate change and the conservation of biodiversity are currently in the headlines of economic debate. Governments design public policies such as taxes or emission trading schemes to mitigate the negative impacts of air or water pollution. Firms launch green business strategies such as investments in cleaner technologies, product labelling or socially responsible investments to improve their competiveness. The Master 2 in Environmental and Natural Resources Economics (ERNA) is providing with the analytical skills to assess, analyse and recommend economic policies and strategies to tackle environmental issues and manage natural resources. Students will target jobs in natural resources management and sustainable development (large businesses, public institutions and local communities) or within international institutions or will pursue an academic career. This programme is mainly led by researchers, experts in environmental and natural resource economics within TSE.
