National Resources Policy, Values and Economics

Natural resource management requires knowledge of policy issues, economics, and human valuation, as much as it requires knowledge of specific natural resources. What are the complex policy factors involved in natural resource management? What is the basic role of economics in the management of natural resources? How are human value systems that underlie policy making and economics integrated into policy decisions? The Natural Resource Policy, Values and Economics Program is designed to answer these questions and enable the natural resource professional to synthesize the concepts learned for use in everyday professional practice.

The Natural Resource Policy, Values and Economics Seminar is a workshop that is part of the U.S. Forest Service Continuing Education Program. The course is offered at Portland State University and the University of Georgia for alternating years. The goal of this Continuing Education program is to enhance the productivity and effectiveness of professionals whose work involves or relates to management of rare plants, wildlife, and fish habitats. The Continuing Education Program strives to serve the people who care for the land and is designed to meet the training needs of entry-level and mid-career professionals.
The week-long program utilizes real-world case studies and interactive exercises to teach concepts to students. Discussion amongst students, professors and guest lecturers on topics related to activities in public lands will assist natural resource professionals to understand and deal with economic and political influences in their agencies.
All type of environmental and natural resource professionals are invited to attend, including those working in state, tribal and other federal agencies. Past participants have included:

  • Bureau of Land Management

  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife
