EEPSEA 2014 Call for Proposals: Research Awards in Environmental Economics

The Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the 2014 competition.  Researchers from EEPSEA member countries (i.e., Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) are invited to submit their full proposals.

EEPSEA was established in May 1993 to support training and research in environmental and natural resource economics. Its goal is to strengthen local capacity in the economic analysis of environmental problems so that researchers can provide sound advice to policymakers. Each year, it calls for proposals on environmental economics research from researchers in Southeast Asia and China.


Research topics that apply the tools of economics in the analysis of policy-relevant environmental challenges are invited.  EEPSEA accepts research proposals on priority national environmental problems. In addition, it encourages research proposals dealing with:

  • economics of climate risk management;
  • ecosystem services valuation; and
  • application of behavioural and institutional economics in the analysis of environmental problems.

Research proposals should incorporate analysis of the gender dimension of the environmental crisis/problem.
