SANDEE Summer School on Environmental and Resource Economics

Event Title: SANDEE Summer School on Environmental and Resource Economics

Deadline: 22nd February 2019

The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE), an initiative of the International Center for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) under the regional programme on Mountain Knowledge and Action Networks, is organizing a three-week Summer School on Environmental and Natural Resource Economics from 5–19 May 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. The main objective of the Summer School is to provide economists the basic skills necessary to teach and conduct research in environmental and natural resource economics. The course is for practicing economists from South Asia and the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region interested in enhancing their knowledge of the inter linkages between economic development, poverty, and the environment. The Summer School has been designed to enable participants to develop research proposals that they can later submit 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 such as experimental economics and other relevant methodologies for analyzing environmental problems in developing countries.


Mani Nepal (Programme Coordinator, SANDEE and Lead Economist, ICIMOD) is the course director and Neesha Pradhan (Programme Associate, SANDEE) will administer the course.

Who should attend the course?

The ideal participant has a Master’s degree/PhD in economics and a good understanding of microeconomics, calculus, and basic econometrics. Junior and mid-career faculty and researchers – especially women working in member universities of the Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) – are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to junior to mid-career university teachers and researchers who have submitted a research proposal to SANDEE on issues related to environmental and resource economics. Those who have already had training in environmental and resource economics through other programmes or universities, or are likely to go overseas for higher education within the next year are not eligible.

Please submit your application by 22 February 2019. If you have any difficulty submitting the online form, please write to Neesha Pradhan <> mentioning the nature of the problem.
