Teaching Environmental and Resource Economics

Welcome to the TRUE wiki for environmental and resource economics. This site is being managed by Aaron Hatcher and Alan Collins at the University of Portsmouth.

Our aim is to establish a repository of material that can be accessed and shared by academics teaching environmental and resource economics, particularly at intermediate/advanced undergraduate level. This could include lecture notes and handouts, slide presentations, suggested reading lists, problems and solutions, case-studies, simulations, etc.

The basic idea behind the TRUE project is to provide a resource to help lecturers develop and refine courses in a number of subject areas which are commonly offered as undergraduate options.

We hope that the site will also build into a useful forum for exchanging ideas, comments and suggestions relating to teaching materials in this subject area.

If this sounds of interest, and especially if you have teaching materials that you would be willing to share, please get in touch with us at
