Research Grants

SANDEE provides research support to South Asian researchers and institutions interested in the inter-connection among development, natural resource use and the environment. Research grants are provided for conducting research on topics related to economics and the environment in South Asian countries. While SANDEE's focus is on environmental management, proposals have to include a strong economics component. Multi-disciplinary projects with a robust economic focus are encouraged. Cross-border collaborations and trans-boundary projects are prioritized. Currently, SANDEE's research activities focus on three prioritized research themes:

   a) understanding the implications of ecosystem changes for economic and social systems;
   b) economic analysis of conserving ecosystems and their services by evaluating costs and benefits

   c) examining different institutional arrangements to manage ecosystem services....More

• Economics of Climate Change
