Analyzing Global Environmental Issues : Theoretical and Experimental Applications and their Policy Implications, Hardback Book

Analyzing Global Environmental Issues : Theoretical and Experimental Applications and their Policy Implications Hardback

Edited by Ariel Dinar, Amnon (University of Arizona, USA) Rapoport

Description

The existence of environmental dilemmas and political conflicts leads us to appreciate the need for individuals and groups to behave strategically in order to achieve their goals and maintain their wellbeing.

Global issues such as climate change, resource depletion, and pollution, as well as revolts and protests against corporations, regimes, and other central authorities, are the result of increased levels of externalities among individuals and nations.

These all require policy intervention at international and global levels. This book includes chapters by experts proposing game theoretical solutions and applying experimental design to a variety of social issues related to global and international conflicts over natural resources and the environment.

The focus of the book is on applications that have policy implications, relevance and, consequently, could lead to the establishment of policy dialogue.

The chapters in the book address issues that are global in nature, such as international environmental agreements over climate change, international water management, common pool resources, public goods, international fisheries, international trade, and collective action, protest, and revolt. The book's main objective is to illustrate the usefulness of game theory and experimental economics in policy making at multiple levels and for various aspects related to global and international issues.

The subject area of this book is already widely taught and researched, but it continues to gain popularity, given growing recognition that the environment and natural resources have become more strategic in human behavior.
