RESOURCE AND ENERGY ECONOMICS




Market efficiency. Water governance. Transforming industries.

We understand how economic development both affects and is affected by social, environmental and cultural perspectives.

Our own evolution has seen the creation of two distinct but complementary themes as diverse as transforming industries, allocating scare resources, and addressing the management of water at both a practical and a policy level.

The Centre for Applied Finance and Economics has particular strengths in trade, market efficiency and monetary policy.

The Centre for Sustainability Governance is a recognised leader in water governance and policy, and a forerunner in such emerging areas as environmental finance and sustainability accounting.
