Theory of Environmental Resources Management (000045)
This course intends to provide the students with, so to speak, a platform to understand what environmental resources are. The lectures consist of two parts: 1) basic frameworks on environmental resources; and 2) study from real examples in Japan and the world. In addition, note that the lectures are given by several professors and that this course is firmly related to the course titled, ‘Environmental Industry Systems.’ This course is a theoretical part, while Environmental Industry Systems is a practical part, even if the former contains practical cases.
