Prof. Charles Perrings
Head of Department – Environment, University of York

Charles Perrings, Professor of Environmental Economics and Environmental Management at the University of York, is President Elect of the International Society for Ecological Economics. He is Editor of the Cambridge University Press journal, Environment and Development Economics, and is on the editorial boards of a number of other journals in the field. Amongst other advisory posts he is on the steering committee of Diversitas, the Advisory Board of the Banca Montei di Paschi di Siena and the Board of Trustees of the Sibthorp Trust-IUCN UK. Previous posts include Professor of Economics at the University of California, Riverside, and Professor of Economics at the University of Botswana. He was also Director of the Biodiversity Programme of the Beijer International Institute of Ecological Economics, Stockholm, and a member of the Royal Society’s environment committee. Much of his work over the last ten years has been directed at building institutional, pedagogical and research links between ecology and economics – the central disciplines in the field of ecological economics. His research interests include the ecology and economics of biodiversity, modelling of dynamical ecological-economic systems, the management of environmental public goods under uncertainty, and the environmental implications of economic development. He has published numerous books and scientific papers in the field.
