CMWS 603 - Coastal and Wetland Policy and Management - 3 credits


An examination of the relationships between economics, environmental policy, environmental ethics, and environmental law. Environmental laws, federal, state and local permitting agencies and their regulations that apply to the coastal zone and wetlands will be examined using locally focused case studies. Consideration is given to gathering and presenting scientific information needed for policy decisions. The interactions and competing pressures between economic interests that impact wetlands will be contrasted with a commitment to ethical treatment and responsible management of wetlands and coastal ecological systems.
