Initially we will explore the ideas of the biology and ecology of conservation, covering everything from natural and current threats to biodiversity all the way to in situ conservation instruments. In this course the students will understand the basic concepts of the biology and ecology of conservation, such as: extinction, habitats and connectivity, threats, and the integrity and stability of ecosystems.

MGAP-4405 Planning and Financial Evaluation

There is a close relationship between the information found in the financial statements of an organization and its operational performance or economic viability. However, each sector or type of organization has special accounting information which reflects the way it operates. For proper financial analysis it is necessary then to know the particularities and the language of what that information describes. This course brings its participants closer to a detailed understanding of the operation of an organization through the interpretation and projection of its financial information. Special emphasis is made on the implications strategic decisions have on an organization’s finances.

MGAP-4406 Economía Ambiental y Recursos Naturales

This course provides basic knowledge of the concepts and the methodology used in economics to analyze environmental problems and natural resources. The course will emphasize the economic tools and instruments used by environmental policy, as well as solutions based on collective management. We will also look at experimental economics as a field for study and an empirical tool for analyzing individual behavior in dilemmas that are common when there are shared resources and other environmental dilemmas. The course covers the following topics: (i) the theory of externalities and of public goods, (ii) renewable and nonrenewable resources, (iii) economic instruments: taxes, tradable permits, and conservation incentives, (iv) institutional and experimental economics, (v) valuations of environmental goods and services, (vi) development and the environment, (vii) economic policy and the environment. We will analyze both experiences in Colombia and in other countries.

MGAP-4407 Ecosystems II: Socio-environmental Dimensions

This course analyzes the conceptual framework of the ecosystemic approach and its application in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. In addition, it delves into certain aspects of the ecology of conservation, such as resilience and the multiple equilibrium states of an ecosystem. It provides an introduction from the ecological theory perspective, analyzing how different human activities and groups transform the environment and create distinctively entropic ecological dynamics and situations. It studies how these changes in the ecosystem have affected the wellbeing of populations and the options to handle them under different scenarios. It places emphasis on the application of the ecosystemic approach as an ecosystem management and planning tool, and applies the concepts learned on different practical cases in the Andean-Amazon region, delving into the challenges of environmental management in view of global change.
