The course covered economic issues underlying sustainable development, externalities and market failure, policy instruments, non-market valuation, poverty-environment interactions, and natural resource use and pollution management. Participants were exposed to basic theoretical issues, and economic tools and methodologies for analyzing environmental problems in developing countries. The course does not seek to be comprehensive but will provide a sound introduction to the literature.
