The Oxford Encyclopedia of Environmental Economics

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Environmental Economics

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Environmental Economics presents our understanding of the character and evolution of this relatively broad field in its macro and micro terms. Through a globally diverse set of articles drawn from the Americas, Europe, China, Africa, Asia, India and Japan, the encyclopedia portrays how and why environmental issues influence economic activity and the effects of economics on the environment we live in. Enhancing this knowledge base for natural scientists as well as for economists, along with sociologists, political scientists, educators, students, researchers and practitioners, will help to clarify the way ahead to a sustainable future worldwide. Five thematic categories prevail with coverage of pressing questions, from the economic consequences of global climate change, water scarcity and habitat loss to the rise of environmental services, and more. All of the articles appear online as part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Environmental Science.

To read the Oxford Encyclopedia of Environmental Economics articles online, see the Environmental Economics section of ORE Environmental Science. This section will continue to grow as the project expands.
