Game Theory and the Environment


  • Nick Hanley
  • Henk Folmer


Game theory has emerged as a powerful new tool in environmental economics, especially in the study of transboundary pollution problems such as global warming and acid rain. This is the first book specifically concerned with this expanding field and addresses key issues in the application of game theory to environmental economics. The book features an impressive list of leading authorities who begin by providing a concise introduction and overview of game theory concepts. They then present an examination of methodological issues, and finally apply game theory to a variety of environmental management problems.
