News SMAP launches e-learning course on Environmental Economics


The SMAP programme for the Environment and Sustainable Development in the Mediterranean Region is inviting anyone interested to sign up for its e-learning course on Environmental Economics, available in English and Arabic.
 
Environmental Economics helps determine the monetary value of environmental assets and of the degradation of those assets. The module is aimed at anyone interested in discovering the advantages and the mechanisms of environmental economics, as well as understanding how it can support decision-making.
 
The course is divided into 9 lessons, each of which should take 2 to 3 hours to complete. Theory is presented in clear, accessible language and is complemented by practical examples, mainly from the Euro-Mediterranean context.
 
SMAP III supports the Mediterranean Partner Countries in their efforts to prevent environmental degradation, improve environmental standards and integrate environmental considerations in their policies. Funded by the Regional Programme, it promotes sustainable development and supports high priority environmental related activities, through technical and financial assistance.
