This collection represents a sample of faculty work from the Environmental Policy & Decision Making Program. Environmental Policy and Decision Making develops an understanding of the multiplicity of values, norms, interests, incentives, and scientific information that influence decisions on environmental issues, teaches to critically examine the social, political, and economic contexts for decisions on environmental issues, and how to engage in interdisciplinary dialogue and apply systems thinking to address current and projected environmental problems.
