Environmental Decision Making - GEOP300

This unit analyses the societal context in which decisions on environmental issues are made, and scientific and technological knowledge applied. Students are required to gain an appreciation of the importance of the economic, legal and policy aspects of environmental debate, of the role of governments and their agencies, and of the ethical and philosophical background against which decisions are made. Specific current, and possibly highly controversial, environmental issues are used to illustrate more general points made and to engender classroom discussion.
