overview of relevant methods and techniques for environmental resource
management and to teach them how to apply these methods. At the end of
the course students should:
1. Understand and be able to explain the main methods and approaches
used to support environmental and resource management;
2. Be able to apply several of the learnt methods and approaches to
environmental problems;
3. Be able to interpret, analyse, and critically reflect on the results
gained from applying the methods and approaches of the selected modules.

This course provides students with a hands-on introduction to four
analytical methods used to support environmental and resource
management: economic analysis, scenario analysis, spatial analysis, and
stakeholder analysis. The methods will be taught through a combination
of lectures, practical classes, and (computer) exercises. The methods
will be applied on (simplified) environmental problems, and students
will reflect on the results.
