SANDEE: Economics of Natural Resource Use and Environmental Change Program in South Asia

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 9 June 2018

The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) is currently seeking concept notes for its “Economics of Natural Resource Use and Environmental Change in South Asia” that will provide research support to South Asian researchers and institutions interested in the connections between economic development, the environment, and the use of natural resources.

Examples of research previously supported by SANDEE include:

  • A country-wide assessment of how well renewable energy subsidies target the poor in Nepal and a case study of incentives for recycling lead acid batteries under India’s Deposit-Refund Scheme.
  • An analysis of possible payments to farmers for ecosystem services in Bhutan and an examination of biodiversity and economic indicators under different forest management strategies in Bangladesh.
  • An evaluation of a REDD+ pilot program in Nepal on carbon sequestration and socio-economic changes, and of a livelihood intervention program in India on farmers’ adaptive capacity. Past areas of research include the economics of climate change (impact assessment, mitigation and adaptation, evaluating programs and policies for greener development, and valuation of ecosystem services).

Grant Information

  • Grants are likely to be in the range of USD 20,000-30,000 over a two-year period.
  • Larger grants are more likely if teams are multidisciplinary, involve two or more countries in the region, or focus on a transboundary issue.

Eligibility Criteria
