This two-part course is designed to provide a practical introduction to the concepts, approaches and methods used in economics to address challenges in water and environmental management. It has been jointly developed with eftec, the UK’s leading dedicated environmental economics consultancy and coordinator of the UK Network of Environmental Economists, and Environmental Policy Consulting, which specialises in the application of environmental economics to water management.

The course will be of interest to those working in the private sector, in public agencies and in non-profit organisations with an interest in how economics impacts on decision making in relation to the natural environment. It is relevant to a range of sectors and fields, including agricultural economy, environmental consulting, water management, green infrastructure, climate change, natural capital, natural resource management, environmental policy/advocacy and environmental impact/sustainability assessment.

The course exceeded my high expectations from CIWEM and was expertly delivered by Ece, Allan and Bruce. The online format worked well and it was very useful to have plenty of discussion and contributions from the other delegates. The quality of the module slides and extensive additional resources provided was especially good and very comprehensive.
