SANDEE is organizing a three-week training course in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics for Economists from April 30 -May 20, 2007. The course is meant for practicing South Asian economists interested in upgrading their skills and learning related to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics.
The workshop seeks to provide economists with the skills necessary to teach environmental and natural resource economics and to undertake research in this area. The course will cover economic issues underlying sustainable development, poverty-environment interactions, and natural resource use and pollution management. Participants will be exposed to basic theoretical issues and economic tools and methodologies for analyzing environmental problems in developing countries. The course does not seek to be comprehensive but will give participants a sound introduction to the literature, theory and methods used in environment and natural resource economics.
Application deadline is February 15. For more information and application guidelines: http://www.sandeeonline.org/teaching_workshops/ee_bangkok_2007/ee_bangkok2007.jsp or http://www.sandeeonline.org/
