Content

Students are introduced to the circular economy. It is illustrated how a problem arising from a resource supply risk can be turned into an economic opportunity. Moreover, students are provided with basic knowledge about the economics and management of the exploitation of natural resources. This is a need because the optimal use of natural resources is based on economic principles. Furthermore, the negative and positive externalities of the use of natural resources are analysed and adapted rural development and environmental policies are discussed.

Theoretical principles are illustrated by exercises and case studies.
