Objectifs du cours / Course objectives
This course aims to primarily increase the students’ awareness about the importance of policy coherence and the main challenges facing development issues when it comes to conciliate social and environmental policies. Environmental policy and the role it can play in ensuring that good environmental quality will be addressed to relate the social distribution of environmental quality, which is concerned with the relative quality of the environment that people experience. The starting point in this discussion is that all groups in society should live in, and have access to, a good quality environment. Given the nature of environmental problems, disparities (or inequalities) in distribution arise which need to be addressed, particularly given the negative health and economic impacts that can result. Other issues about how policy design and implementation needs to ensure that are also addressed, as well as policy design and implementation and how decision makers should recognize the opportunities for enhancing social objectives alongside environmental objectives, not just avoiding the negative outcomes.
