Duke University is home to dozens of scholars in the field of environmental and natural resource economics.  Across the University, our faculty, staff and students perform cutting-edge research, which applies economic principles and methods to wide-ranging problems in energy and climate change, conservation of natural resources, water and air quality, environmental health and other critical areas.

This web portal is designed to provide access to information on the Duke Environmental Economics Working Group and work performed in this consistently evolving field by its members in Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy, Fuqua School of Business, Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, School of Law, Nicholas School of the Environment and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, which helps inform and disseminate the product of these efforts.

Overall, the work by the group reflects Duke’s commitment to knowledge in the service to society, and is often used by decision makers in the public and private sectors.
