Biodiversity and Climate Change: Identifying an Economic Research Agenda
During the past two decades, environmental problems have expanded in terms of both their geographical scope as well as complexity. As a result, scientific research and policy deliberations have shifted from an emphasis on predominately localized, single-resource problems such as ambient air or water quality within relatively discrete spatial domains to consideration of a myriad of interrelated problems at a regional or even global scale. This raises challenges for developing integrated environmental research programmes and, ultimately, linking insights from scientific findings to policy- making.
