Natural resource economics deals with the supply , demand , and allocation of the Earth 's natural resources. One main objective of natural resource economics is to better understand the role of natural resources in the economy in order to develop more sustainable methods of managing those resources to ensure their availability for future generations. Resource economists study interactions between economic and natural systems, with the goal of developing a sustainable and efficient economy.

Farm and forestlands provide carbon sequestration, clean air and water, scenic vistas, and biodiversity. To help develop a sustainable, efficient economy, NIFA programs focus on activities that apply economic theory and methods to study interactions between economic and natural systems.
Climate change, bioenergy, and environmental goods and services are major topics. As the global population increases, so does the demand for agricultural products. Agriculture, however, is no longer the largest element in the economic base of most rural communities. The demand for environmental benefits has grown higher as incomes increase and people pursue a better quality of life. The environment with its diversity of natural resources has a significant impact on the economic viability of communities and human well-being.
Natural resources and related income opportunities have increased the importance of best management practices to enhance agricultural production while avoiding the degradation of natural resources and the environment. Agricultural best management practices help lead to the sustainable use of natural resources and the environment.
Resource economists address how choices are made by farmers, ranchers, and policymakers; how policy incentives might motivate better choices; and the potential consequences and distribution effects of these choices. The long-term sustainability of natural resources and the environment is directly linked to many recognized environmental benefits from agriculture, such as carbon sequestration, open space and scenic vistas, ground water recharge, flood protection, wildlife habitats, community buffers or greenways, historical or cultural significance, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
NIFA programs encompass broad topical areas, including bioenergy, climate change, watersheds and terrestrial systems, water quality and supply, invasive species management, conservation policy, the valuation of non-market environmental goods and services, land use conservation and resource management, and nature-based recreation.
To address these challenges, NIFA supports a systems approach at multiple scales that leads to the development of a sustainable and efficient economy.
Resource economists collaborate with other biological and physical scientists to explore alternative natural resource management strategies that support long-term sustainability goals. An interdisciplinary systems approach combining research, education, and extension yields a broader understanding of the environment, ecology, natural resources, human behaviors, history, culture, demography, and their interactions and interrelationships.

The ecology or the economy? Often economic and environmental interests are seen as the opposite. However, we are increasingly confronted with the fact that modern environmental problems are the result of the decision to "just earn" without caring about the consequences for nature. The consequences of this are the enormous costs of restoring natural systems. It is the coordination of environmental and economic interests that specialists in the field of environmental economics are engaged in. The number of activities of specialists in the field of natural resources management includes assessments of natural resources, environmental and economic justification of projects, environmental and economic analysis of enterprises, justification and creation of natural resources management systems. The Master's degree program includes economic disciplines, problems of environmental and economic assessments.
How can we create a sustainable society that protects the environment while maintaining a prosperous society? Why have humans caused environmental degradation on local, regional, and global scales, and what can we do about it? Public officials, nonprofit organizations, and private businesses need professionals who can answer these questions in order to design a new sustainable world. Within economics, environmental and natural resource economics is the application of the principles of economics to the study of how environmental and natural resources are developed and managed. It focuses on weighing the private and public implications of choices that we make ranging from a local through a global scale. Learners will apply economic tools to evaluate the allocation and utilization of natural resources and the management of the natural environment within agriculture. Learners will also focus on the importance of agricultural economics through the analysis of agricultural problems associated with socially optimal use of renewable and nonrenewable natural resources over time including problems of common property resources, irreversible forms of development, and preservation of natural areas.
Learning about the role of natural resources allows for the development of more sustainable methods to manage resources and make sure that they are maintained for future generations. The goal of natural resource economics is to develop an efficient economy that is sustainable in the long-run. Importance of the Environment : This diagram illustrates how society and the economy are subsets of the environment. It is not possible for societal and economic systems to exist independently from the environment.
This book, based on lectures on natural and environmental resource economics, offers a nontechnical exposition of the modern theory of sustainability in the presence of resource scarcity. The approach throughout is primarily conceptual and theoretical, though empirical estimation and results are sometimes noted. Mathematics, ranging from elementary calculus to more formal dynamic optimization, is used, especially in the early chapters on the optimal management of exhaustible and renewable resources, but results are always given an economic interpretation. Diagrams and numerical examples are also used extensively. The first chapter introduces the classical economists as the first resource economists, in their discussion of the implications of a limited natural resource base agricultural land for the evolution of the wider economy.

Беккер покровительственно улыбнулся и перевел взгляд на дверь в ванную. - А у Росио. Капельки Росы. Лицо мужчины из мертвенно-бледного стало красным. - Вы знаете Капельку Росы? - Вытерев пот со лба рукавом халата, он собирался что-то сказать, но тут отворилась дверь в ванную.
Если я ошиблась, то немедленно ухожу, а ты можешь хоть с головы до ног обмазать вареньем свою Кармен Хуэрту. - Мидж зло посмотрела на него и протянула руку. - Давай ключ. Я жду. Бринкерхофф застонал, сожалея, что попросил ее проверить отчет шифровалки.
