Environmental Finance & Risk Management

The Environmental Finance & Risk Management program seeks to meet our most pressing environmental challenges by applying advanced financial modeling and data analytics to the variety of environmental data that policymakers rely on for environmental resilience and adaptation strategies. It is based on the rationale that spending money is required for large-scale human-driven environmental change (e.g. land development, resource extraction and harvesting, manufacturing, distribution, disposal, cleanup, restoration). Human actions as financial transactions are essential, since "conservation without finance is just conversation." Integrating finance and natural systems can be achieved by linking financial theory and innovations to environmental sciences.
