MIT Project on Environmental Politics & Policy

This site provides examples of how politics intersect with attempts to reduce environmental impact on ecosystems. Research papers provided discuss the relationship between economic growth and the environment, especially in the area of endangered species. The site also provides template forms to evaluate wetlands habitat on private properties, originally developed to inform environmental policy actions in the U.S. state of Massachusetts.
