SCHOLARSHIP: PhD Opportunities in Environmental Economics in Birmingham
The Department of Economics in the University of Birmingham has recently been awarded two +3 PhD scholarships in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics.
- Climate, Hydropower and Economic Performance in Africa. This project aims to identify the economic implications of increasing hydropower investment in Africa in the face of climate change.
- The economic valuation of flood risk. This PhD proposes to use nonmarket valuation techniques such as the hedonic price technique and choice experiments empirically to determine the economic benefits to households of protection from flood risk.
Both offer fees and maintenance for UK/EU students.
Deadline: January 15, 2012
