The Summer School in Environmental and Resource Economics is SANDEE’s flagship course, which is offered every year in the month of May. The Summer School was previously referred to as Environmental Economics (EE) course. The Summer School is a three-week course that provides economists with the basic skills necessary to teach environmental and natural resource economics and to undertake research in this area. The course is meant for practicing South Asian economists interested in upgrading their knowledge on the linkages between economic development and the environment. The course also seeks to enable participants to develop research proposals for later submission to SANDEE. Approximately 25 participants from across South Asia are invited to participate in this course.
