Economia Ecològica

Department / Institut: Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals (ICTA)

Ecological Economics (EE) is a science of sustainability that views the economy as embedded in the biophysical ecosystem. Through a transdisciplinary approach, it emphasizes the social, economic, biophysical, cultural and ethical issues at stake in the management of human economies and their interactions with the natural world. EE provides tools and methods with a potential for wide impact in environmental policy-making at local, national, European and global levels. EE areas of study include ecological distribution conflicts and their link with the social metabolism of societies, the development of physical indicators and indices, the economic valuation of environmental services, the multiplicity of languages of valuation at stake in resource management, multi-criteria evaluation methods, transitions to sustainable energy and transport systems, and environmental policy instruments to improve sustainability.
