Environmental Economy & Policy

The Environmental Economy and Policy research group (EEP) consists of applied economists, lawyers and policy experts. Our members are lecturers, research associates, research assistants and PhD students working on a broad range of environmental and agricultural policy issues.


Our overarching objective is to undertake economic and legal research that addresses real problems and directly feeds into policy. This is translated into active participation in international and national research projects and publications in scholarly journals and policy documents. In addition, our staff are involved in teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Within EEP, the Rural Business Unit (RBU) carries out a program of research in applied and institutional economic analysis of agriculture, the rural environment and rural development.  Its work is funded primarily by government departments such as the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Environment Agency.  In addition the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) carries out research to foresee strategies, policies and processes to mitigate human-induced climate change which are effective, efficient and equitable, including understanding and modelling transitions to low-carbon energy-environment-economy systems.

Members of EEP are also involved in the work of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

The Capco Future Cities PhD Prize Fellowship competition 2018 is now open - the prize includes £2,000 to develop research on any topic related to the future of cities.
