This course will introduce you to a range of economic and sustainability principles. We discuss how economic principles shape the behaviour of individuals and organizations, and how these principles can help meet policy objectives effectively and efficiently particularly in resource and environmental management. We examine how thinking like an economist can provide a lens through which we can think about and improve the world. Understanding key economic principles like incentives, trade-offs, markets, and costs and benefits, means making better organisational decisions, including sustainability ones. The course will also cover the principles of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria, and sustainability within a bi-cultural and global context.
