42nd Biannual research



The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) is an initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) under the regional programme on Mountain Knowledge and Action Networks (MKAN). SANDEE is a research capacity-building network that supports South Asian researchers and institutions interested in the connections between economic development, the environment, and the use of natural resources.

SANDEE will hold its 42nd biannual research and training workshop online.

Selected researchers, whose proposals have gone through peer review, will present to peers and SANDEE faculty advisors and defend their proposals for SANDEE research grants. The workshop will also review the progress of research under past SANDEE-ICIMOD grants.


Restoring global forests: Opportunities and challenges

Jeffrey R. Vincent
Clarence F. Korstian Professor of Forest Economics and Management
Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University

10 December 2021 (18:00–20:00 NPT) | Virtual (Zoom) and open to public

Jeffrey R. Vincent’s talk will focus on the economics of global forest restoration, with an emphasis on the Global South. It will draw on a 2021 review article – “Forest Restoration in Low- and Middle-Income Countries” – by him, Sara Curran, and Mark Ashton, published in the Annual Review of Environment and Resources, and other sources. Recent studies have identified a large biophysical potential to sequester carbon and supply other ecosystem services by restoring forests, but they have largely ignored socioeconomic issues. Vincent’s talk will provide an economic perspective on forest restoration opportunities and challenges.

This keynote is open to the public.
