授業の概要・目的 Forest economics is a broad field of study that can address the decision-making associated with all aspects of forest management. This course covers a broad issue that is related to forest and economics. One objective of this course is to learn how we can use economics to understand forest-related issues and provide answers to the questions. Another objective is to learn economics methods used in the analysis of environmental issue, including game theory, public economics, experimental economics, econometrics, benefit-cost analysis, survey methods, and impact evaluation.
