About the meeting

SANDEE is organizing a series of consultative meetings and workshops with advisors and partners of the research project on the ‘Economics of Forest Restoration’. They will be conducted on four different days, each dedicated to a country team. The main aim of these meetings is to dive deeper into the research strategies of the project and develop a better plan to move forward.

 

Background

SANDEE is initiating a research project on the Economics of Forest Restoration in collaboration with partners from four countries in South Asia – Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Pakistan. The aim is to understand the economics of forest restoration as a carbon mitigation option and its distributional impacts on gender and marginalized groups.

The research project is funded by International Development Research Center (IDRC), Canada. Led by Mani Nepal, Programme Coordinator, SANDEE, ICIMOD, as Project Leader (Principal Investigator), the project duration is three years (February 2022–January 2025). Two SANDEE advisors, Jeff Vincent, Professor at Duke University, and François Libois, Professor at the Paris School of Economics, are also involved in the research. Research teams from the four countries will also be part of the project.
