Research Group on Environmental Economics (GEA)
Head of the group: Pablo del Río González
The Environmental Economics line of research focuses on problems related with methodological advance on integrated national environmental accounting and non-market services economic valuation on the issues of forest management, agroforestry and silvopastoral systems, renewable energies, climate change, biodiversity, water resources and other ecosystems and natural resources subject to increasing scarcity, and which provide essential public and private goods to sustain the economic wellbeing reached in industrialised societies and the improvement of the quality of life in current societies whose population is below the poverty line. From the point of view of globalisation, it is especially relevant to design the international scale economic tools required for the efficient management of global public goods, in order to prevent the free-rider behaviour analysed by game theory.
