Question description

The paper should provide a critical review of an existing environmental problem, policy, or proposal, with particular attention to the economic aspects of the problem. The paper should illustrate that you can apply some of the concepts developed in class to a real-world problem.


You may select any topic related to environmental economics, subject to my approval. You will need to select an appropriately narrow topic because of the page-length requirements (see below). Climate change, for example, is too broad of a topic. The costs and benefits of a U.S. carbon cap-and-trade program is a better choice. You may focus on a local, regional, or global topic. I strongly encourage you to discuss your topic with me before the outline is due.


The paper should be five-eight pages typed using 8.5”x11” paper, double spaced text, 11-point type face, and one-inch margins on all sides. Be sure to number your pages and use section headers to organize content. Do not right justify the text.

You need to have a cover page and bibliography. The cover page, bibliography and any tables, graphs, or charts are excluded from the page-length requirements.


You need to provide supportive data and cite your sources for the information you present. You must include a minimum of three refereed journal articles in your paper. Keep internet citations to a minimum; be careful about their reliability. No Wikipedia or blog references, please. You may cite the textbooks on reserve or other textbooks. Please refer to handouts on proper citation methods .


The outline is due via Canvas by noon on Thursday, September 27th, and is worth 10% of the project grade. The purpose of the outline is two-fold. First, it helps you organize your thoughts. Second, it helps me prevent two students from choosing the same topic. Make sure to include a key sentence that describes your paper. For example, if you choose air quality impacts from motor vehicle emissions, your topic sentence could be “Should the United States raise the average fuel economy standards of cars and light trucks in order to reduce mobile source air pollution?”

You need to include at least one reference (a refereed journal article) at the bottom of the outline. Format your outline in the traditional way (I. A. i. ii. B. i. ii. II. etc.). Students may “reserve” their topics by sending me an email any time prior to September 27th. Topics will be determined on a first-come first-served basis.

Climatic Change & Desertification
Institutional Affiliation




In this particular article, I will be focusing on climatic changes and how it has actually led to
desertification. Climatic changes and desertification is a serious problem that the earth is facing at this
particular moment and for this reason, I believe it is good to talk about this particular topic. I will also talk
about the various economic policies that can be established in order to reduce this particular problem and
the reason for this is because with policies and rules then it means things we always go in the wrong
direction because there is nothing tangible to prevent it.

Climatic Change & Desertification
Climatic change is regarded to be a huge topic since it is actually a problem that the whole world
is facing but on the other hand, we must acknowledge the fact that climatic change is the main reason we
are actually experiencing desertification in various regions of the world (Boserup, 2017). Climatic change
is the aspect in which the temperature of the world is dramatically changing around the world. With this I
mean that the temperature is changing from the low and moderate temperatures to high temperatures and
because of this, various areas around the world are experiencing a shortage of rainfall or water supply and
thus leading to desertification. A good example of a country that is highly being affected by
desertification is Sudan and for this reason, it is making the people from this particular country to migrate
to other regions such as Kenya. Climatic change is leading to a lot of problems such as drought, extreme
heat, violent storms, but in this particular article, a will only focus on the aspect of desertification.
Impact of Climatic Change
Climatic change has impacted various fields of studies in a negative way in the sense that it is
destroying the livelihood of human beings and animals in general. Some of the areas that have greatly
been impacted negatively by climatic changes include the following:
This is the largest section that has greatly been impacted by the climatic change and the main
reason for this is because at this particular moment the weather and the environment of the world are
changing. Large sections of forests around the world are turn...
