Research into the Sustainable Use of Natural Resources

Welcome to the research group "Sustainable Use of Natural Resources"


The research group studies a range of topics in environmental and public economics guided by a motivation to make economic policy recommendations politically actionable.


Our goal is to help students become future-oriented decision-makers by teaching them about required economic policy instruments, the role of inequality, and the poitical reality.
