What they do?

Forest and Environmental economists are expected to pursue careers involving a rigorous application of economic theories and methods in natural resources’ decisions for sustainable utilization and conservation of natural resources. Further, they are expected to support a viable and progressive forest products industry that can keep pace with similar industries throughout the world. The graduates will benefit from the analysis which links economic principles with both private and public forestry decision making, including resource allocation over time and space, forest sector markets and market intervention (including international trade), valuing un-marketed ecosystem services, and forest taxation.
