This issue of Sustainability aims to present current theoretical and applied work employing the tools of economics to advance our understanding of sustainable resource management and development. Although the concepts of “sustainability” and “sustainable development” are somewhat amorphous, the development and analysis of policies designed to improve societal impacts on the environment - while also improving the human condition - are not. The conceptual and empirical tools of environmental and natural resource economics provide a critical foundation for the formulation of sound policies to manage the overlapping human and environmental systems.
We welcome submissions of theoretical and applied economics papers, as well as critical reviews of the extant literature, which address one or more areas of environmental and natural resource management. Topical areas for consideration include, but are not limited to, valuation and payments for ecosystem services, biodiversity conservation, renewable and nonrenewable energy markets, water and air resource management, land-use policy, natural resource management, agriculture and economic development, and all aspects of climate change.
