Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

International environmental problems such as climate change or ozone layer depletion pose a tremendous challenge to the world economy. As most of those problems stem from externalities which occur as a by-product of industrial processes or consumption, regulation of those activities might be necessary. However, measures against pollution, such as abatement activities are often costly for firms and consumers. The public good problems hinters welfare improvements if there is no cooperation among agents. This problem is especially pressing in an international environment where there is a lack of binding law enforcement.

After a short introduction into the field of environmental economics, the course will focus on international environmental problems, mainly on climate change. There are three main parts in the course:
1) Regulation: Different approaches as emission tax, cap and trade, command and control instruments.
2) Integrated Assessment Models: Models which contain a comprehensive view on climate dynamics, population and economics.
3) International Environmental Agreements: Coaltion Building, Contracts.
