Department of “Protection and Economy of Environment” was established in 2009 as a result of the combination of two independent departments – “Economic Geography” and Economy of Nature Management” and “Production Systems and Environmental Protection”. The department of “Economic Geography”, united in this chair, had been functioning since the 1930s.
