Protecting environmental quality and stewarding natural resources are two of society’s ongoing grand challenges. Environmental and resource economics (ERE) in ACE yields knowledge about issues such as how to manage water resources, design conservation strategies, and develop energy and transportation policies that improve society and the environment. Research and outreach in this area also contribute to a fundamental understanding about how to value ecosystem services and design pollution policies. Faculty and students in ERE publish cutting-edge research and bring the results to bear on collaborations with stakeholders and policy makers in the state of Illinois and nationwide.
