ENVS 61 Governing the Environment
This course contrasts the dominant approach to environmental governance, which emphasizes high levels of control and simplification, with an alternative nuanced, evolutionary approach. Each approach is explored with a set of case studies (e.g. climate change, deforestation, water use). The goal of the course is for each student to be able to diagnose the challenges involved in any particular environmental problem, and from this derive policy prescriptions for addressing that problem.
