Teaching (Diekert)


In this winter semester, I will teach the lecture "Natural Resource Economics" for Master students. The course will be a mix of pre-recorded lectures with take-home assignments and meetings (in person). A detailed course description is available [here].

In addition, I will give a hands-on seminar together with Tillmann Eymess where groups of three to four students design, conduct, and evaluate an economic experiment on resource use under the threat of crossing a catastrophic tipping point. For more info see [here] .


Previously, I have taught the following courses at the AWI, Heidelberg University:

  • Natural Resource Economics (Master). WS 16/17, 17/18 and 18/19.
  • Economics of Common Pool Resources (Bachelor). SS 2017 and 2018
  • Climate Change and Conflict (Bachelor). SS 2020


I’m happy to supervise good Bachelor or Master projects. Before registering the project, I ask you to produce a project plan. Here are the guidelines that I use for the eventual grading. Here is a link to a LaTeX template(thanks to Zeno Enders).

Other courses in environmental and resource economics

If you want to learn more, I encourage you to check out the courses that Timo Goeschl offers here in Heidelberg and the courses that Ulrich Wagner offers at the Uni Mannheim [link]. Note that there is a "Kooperationsvertrag" between Mannheim and Heidelberg so that your credits in environmental economics from the respective other university are accepted at your home university.
