Environment and Development Economics is positioned at the intersection of environmental, resource and development economics. The Editor and Associate Editors, supported by a distinguished panel of advisors from around the world, aim to encourage submissions from researchers in the field in both developed and developing countries. The Journal is divided into two main sections, Theory and Applications, which includes regular academic papers and Policy Options, which includes papers that may be of interest to the wider policy community. Environment and Development Economics also publishes occasional Policy Fora (discussions based on a focal paper). Recent special issues have included the two-part “Special Issue on the Economics of Climate Change and Sustainability” guest edited by Elettra Agliardi, Marco Casari and Anastasios Xepapadeas and the “Special Issue on the Environment, Resources and Pollution - New Challenges for Economic Development” guest edited by Inmaculada Martínez-Zarzoso, Camélia Turcu and Christian Oberst.

They aim at providing new insights into the economics of climate change and help to identify new directions for future research."
