There are environmental implications to how we pursue development. There are debates, emerging from unequal distribution of environmental impacts and unequal distribution of wealth, about how to respond to environmental crises. In this course, we will look at the history of economic development, the emergence of environmental awareness and the history of the politics of the environment. We will look at contemporary debates over our economic model, energy, agricultural production, and rural and urban development. Finally, we will analyze the types of public policies being implemented to address environmental concerns, as well as their impacts. We conclude by reflecting on how we, as a society, need to rethink development. Hours & Format
