Special Issue "Economic Analysis on Energy and Environmental Issues and Policy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 May 2021) | Viewed by 36507
The current economic system highly depends on energy and natural resources. As a result, economic activities cause various environmental issues, including climate change, pollution, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, waste, and resource depletion. These environmental issues eventually affect our economy, such as industrial activities, agriculture/forestry and land use, disasters, and human health. The global society is now aiming to achieve circular economy as well as a low-carbon, sustainable society. To solve environmental issues and achieve this society, various policy measures have been or will be implemented throughout the world at various levels (global, regional, national, and local). Therefore, it is indispensable to understand the economic aspects of environmental and energy issues and policy (i.e., how environmental and energy issues and policy affect the economy).
This Special Issue aims to gather state-of-the-art research findings and knowledge in all aspects of economic analysis on energy and environmental issues and policy (both empirical and scenario analysis). We also welcome studies with various approaches, from quantitative to qualitative.
