  • Title: Wish to Donate?
    Descriptive info: Wish to support us by donating?.. Needs for future support.. LACEEP is currently looking for an interested donor willing to join an exciting and well-established capacity building effort, with a proven track record of scientific excellence and high accountability to our donors and our focus region, and with strong south-south collaborations and networking (both within the LAC region, but also in relation to our sister organizations in Asia and Africa).. What have we accomplished so far?.. During its first five years, LACEEP has received 372 proposals.. Within the nine workshops organized during this period, 104 new applicants have been invited to present their research proposals and 50 research fellowships have been granted across the region (see Figure 1.. a).. Seventeen policy briefs and nineteen working papers have been published and others are in currently in the process of being published.. The funded research projects have looked into a variety of issues and landscapes such as climate change effects in Mexico and Brazil, the mining sector in Peru, water issues in the agricultural sector in Brazil and in urban areas in Ecuador, marine protected areas in Colombia to name a few and fisheries in Argentina.. This research has been published in well known field journals such as Ecological Economics, Marine Policy and Fisheries Research among others.. In addition, we have trained 245 environmental practitioners with different backgrounds and disciplines in environmental and  ...   environmental and resource economics.. Nonetheless, own experience and observation of the program's performance has encouraged us to visualize some adjustments in the program that guarantee in the future increasing our impact in the region.. To do that, we propose for the following years:.. - To spread knowledge, tools and recommendations from rigorous academic research.. - To support local governments implement effective environmental and governance mechanisms.. - To scale out outreach and deepening.. - To contribute on policy incidence for poverty alleviation.. - To strength gender equality in research.. - To open the program to researchers that can work based in the Spanish language.. - To open the program to the possibility of supply-driven proposals.. - To open the program to other training activities..

Moreover, these experts are available throughout the workshop for informal discussions and advice.. Workshops have also served to increase networking among Latin American Environmental Economists.. This is a place where the participants share different environmental realities and discuss research ideas.. The third key component of LACEEP is a series of courses on selected topics of environmental economics..

  • Title: LACEEP
    Descriptive info: Apply For a Grant.. Short Proposal.. Research writing tips.. Apply for a Research Grant XI Round: Call for Research Proposals LACEEP is the Latin American and Caribbean Environmental Economics Program.. LACEEP s research program focuses in general on applied, policy relevant research.. There is widespread interest in minimizing pollution and resource degradation by ensuring that economic agents face the full economic, social and environmental costs of their activities.. But many questions remain to be answered, for example: What is the economic value of the environmental damage incurred by a given activity? What roles can sectoral, macroeconomic and trade policies play in achieving full-cost pricing? What roles do community management of resources, changes in property rights and other institutional factors play? Does full-cost pricing have negative effects on the poor and how might these be mitigated? What are the implications of full-cost pricing for economic growth and structural changes? Furthermore, work on the design and evaluation (ex-ante and ex-post) of environmental policy instruments for natural resource management and pollution control is also encouraged.. LACEEP s research awards are granted through twice-yearly competitions.. The assessment of proposals is done on a competitive basis.. Interested researchers should first fill and submit the two-page preliminary proposal form that includes the following information: title of the project, project leader, contact information (name, address, telephone, fax, email) and general description of.. LACEEP’s research awards  ...   costs that may be included in project budgets.. Proposals should follow exactly the proposed structure provided in the Guidelines and shouldby no means exceed 10 pages (excluding attachments).. In a cover letter, applicants should indicate what other research projects they are currently carrying out, and their funding source.. If a proposal similar to the one submitted to LACEEP has been or will be submitted to another funding source, this should be clearly indicated.. It is anticipated that most projects will be done on a part-time basis; proponents should be able to demonstrate that they have adequate time to carry out the project and that there is no duplication of other activities.. Full proposals should be written in English to facilitate their external revision.. This page contains links to a wide ranges of practical tools for people who do research in or teach environmental economics.. Most of these links originate in the web pages of:.. • Economy and Environment Program for southeast Asia (EEPSEA).. • South Asian Network for Environment and Development Economics (SANDEE).. Researchers who are considering submitting research proposals to these or other environmental economics networks are advised to consult the documents under "Writing Research Proposals".. More than seventy documents are accessible through this page, in the following areas:.. Writing Research Proposals.. Writing Research Reports.. Research Methods.. Conducting Household Surveys.. Bibliographies.. Data Bases and Data Sets.. Course Outlines..
