The primary objective of the Center is to provide independent, timely analysis of natural resource issues, options, and programs facing citizens, business interests, and policy makers, including the economic, environmental, and social impacts of environmental problems and current and proposed policies. While research conducted by Center personnel often is focused on Tennessee, the issues addressed by the research efforts are regional or national in scope. The initial research efforts, for example, address land use change, water quality, and economic development – all significant natural resources issues throughout the Southeast.
