Deadline: 22nd February, 2018
The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) is organizing a three-week training course on Environmental and Natural Resource Economics from 30 April–18 May 2018. The main objective of the Summer School is to provide economists with the basic skills necessary to teach environmental and natural resource economics and to undertake research in this area. The course is meant for practicing South Asian economists interested in upgrading their knowledge on the linkages between economic development, poverty, and the environment. The workshop also seeks to enable participants to develop research proposals for later submission to SANDEE.
What can you expect from the Summer School?
The course will cover economic issues underlying sustainable development, externalities and market failure, policy instruments, non-market valuation, poverty-environment interactions, and natural resource use and pollution management. Participants will be exposed to theoretical issues and economic tools and methodologies for analyzing environmental problems in developing countries.
Who will teach the course?
The course will be taught by:
- Sir Partha Dasgupta, Frank Ramsey Professor Emeritus, Cambridge University
- AK Enamul Haque, Professor, East-West University
- Randall Bluffstone, Professor, Portland State University
- Maximillian Auffhammer, Professor, University of California, Berkley
