Environmental economics developed into a separate specialty primarily as a result of the rapid growth of the environmental movement and governmental responses to it starting in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It drew on neoclassical economic theory and applied it to the analysis of environmental policy issues and governmental proposals to respond to them. It has advanced primarily on the basis of its relevance to increasing interest in environmental public policy issues and of its strong foundations in neoclassical economics. This special issue will endeavor to continue this successful approach by publishing research that has relevance to environmental policy issues of current and likely future interest using a neoclassical approach. This embraces empirical applications, methods development, and theoretical research. For example, development of new or improved benefit measurement techniques to determine the economic benefits of pollution control has such relevance if the techniques appear likely to be useful in measuring the economic benefits of proposed environmental control measures now in place or likely to be put in place in the future.
The special issue is open to any subject in environmental economics as long as it meets the characteristics described above. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
