Ecological Economics

The Internaltional Society for Ecological Economics provides a venue for intellectual exchange and collaboration on issues related to the theory, policy, and implementation of sustainability and sustainable development. It publishes Ecological Economics, a journal concerned with extending and integrating the study and management of ecology and economics. This integration is necessary because conceptual and professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term.

The Transdisciplinary Journal of the ISEEl is concerned with extending and integrating the study and management of “nature’s household” (ecology) and “humankind’s household” (economics). This integration is necessary because conceptual and professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term. The journal is transdisciplinary in spirit and methodologically open.

Specific research areas covered include:

  • valuation of natural resources
  • sustainable agriculture and development
  • ecologically integrated technology
  • integrated ecologic-economic modelling at scales from local to regional to global
  • implications of thermodynamics for economics and ecology
  • renewable resource management and conservation
  • critical assessments of the basic assumptions underlying current economic and ecological paradigms and the implications of alternative assumptions
  • economic and ecological consequences of genetically engineered organisms
  • gene pool inventory and management
  • alternative principles for valuing natural wealth
  • integrating natural resources and environmental services into national income and wealth accounts
  • methods of implementing efficient environmental policies
  • case studies of economic-ecologic conflict or harmony
