How do I incorporate sustainability, justice, and/or equity into the courses I teach?

I teach Environmental Economics and the Economics of Sustainability.  In both courses issues of sustainability, justice and equity are at the core of the curriculum.  Both courses underscore that traditional neoclassical economic theories of environmental degradation overlook the threats and challenges of sustainable development and equity.  We address the deficiencies in traditional economics by exploring alternative theories of economic development and environmental stewardship. 

How does my research advance sustainability, justice and/or equity?

My research focuses on how climate change will affect land and water use in U.S. agriculture.   Climate change will alter the conditions in which agricultural producers will provide food and fiber for American consumers.  My research investigates how changes in climatic temperature and precipitation would alter crop irrigation and cropping patterns.
