Types of research grants

Regular research grants

SANDEE provides research grants related to the economics of environment and development. Currently, grants are made in three thematic areas: (1) ecosystem management (2) economics of climate change (3) policies and programs for greener development

For research grants, we generally invite the submission of research pre-proposals two times a year in April and October. However, pre-proposals are accepted throughout the year. Pre-proposals are evaluated on their academic merit and policy significance. After screening the pre-proposals, short-listed applicants are invited to submit full proposals, which are reviewed internally and externally before the grant is awarded. Grants are managed through the researchers institution, so an institutional affiliation is required for receiving the research grant.

Year Grantee Grant title Country Research summary
2020 Pawan Kumar Sharma Apple production under climate change: Willingness to pay for weather indexed insurance India The main goal of the proposed study is to mitigate the negative impact of extreme climatic events on economics of apple production through identification and adoption of effective risk aversion strategies under climate change scenario. However, the specific objective of the proposed study is to determine the optimal premium rate for crop insurance in J&K.
The objectives of the study are based on two specific research questions as mentioned below:
i.    What is the growers’ willingness to pay (WTP) for insuring economically important crops under PMFBY and WBCIS?
ii.    What are the factors affecting farmers’ WTP for crop insurance?  
2020 Amjad Ali Economic valuation of high altitude nature- based tourism in Gilgit Baltistan Pakistan Pakistan This study aims to estimate the economic value nature based tourism in Hunza valley of Gilgit-Baltistan using traveling cost method while collecting primary data from domestic and international tourists. Results of the study will show the economic potential of nature based tourism which will in turn be used to give baseline results to develop policy for sustainable nature based tourism in the region.
2020 Samir Bahadur Thapa Analysis of demand for domestic biogas plants as a clean cooking technology in Nepal – a panel data approach Nepal The overall goal/objective of the study is to estimate the magnitude of the impact of subsidy and credit support, on the demand and supply of clean cooking technologies. The specific objectives are to understand 1) the elements of the clean cooking program that have increased the likelihood of clean cooking technology construction and use, and 2) the elements of the available household and regional characteristics that influences the adoption of clean cooking technology.
2019 Rinzin Dema Environmental impact of energy access: a case of firewood, biogas, electricity, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) Bhutan  This study will examine the effectiveness of subsidy in renewable energy technology in diversifying energy usage using the propensity score matching (PSM) and logistic regression analysis. The study will also illustrate how the firewood collection time has changed with the adoption of technology using linear and negative binomial regression. The study further aims to iterate the role of genders in household-level energy decision-making.
2019 AV Manjunatha/Devika CM Institutional and economic analysis of human-wildlife conflict mitigation in the Indian coffee plantations India This study aims at analysing the effectiveness of individual and collective mitigation efforts on human-wildlife conflicts undertaken by coffee planters in Karnataka, the largest coffee growing State in India and to explore the efficacy of collective mitigation measures prevalent in the coffee plantations sector.
2019 Bishal Bhardwaj What makes Nepal’s renewable energy subsidy effective? Nepal The study aims to exploit the variation in subsidy, category, and amount, which is at the end total subsidy, and use it to estimate its effect on RET adoption at the village level of Nepal to evaluate the effectiveness of subsidy policy.
2019 Naveed Hayat The effect of environmental management system on the firm performance Pakistan Environmental Management System (EMS) is important scheme for voluntary environmental actions. The main objective of the proposed study is to analyze the effect of EMS on the manufacturing firms’ environmental, financial, and economic performance. The secondary objective of the study is to determine the factors that drive a manufacturing firm’s decision to adopt EMS.
2019 Debashis Das What are informal smelters’ recycling preferences towards spent solar home system lead acid batteries in Bangladesh? Bangladesh Thus, this study wants to investigate policy option(s) to incentivize for safe disposal/recycling of Solar Home Systems Lead Acid Batteries SHS-LAB. In particular, understanding informal smelters’ preferences and wiliness to accept for safe disposal/recycling of SHS-LAB. Since there is apparently no legal framework for returning and recycled SHS-LAB has been in the place in Bangladesh, it is important to find which policy framework can be implemented to reduce SHS-LAB disposing. Thus, this study will bridge the research gap in this field and add major policy implication to the government with regarding to regulatory controls, logistics support and pricing issues.
2019 Nirmal Kumar Raut Natural disaster and assets recovery: empirical evidence from Nepal’s earthquake Nepal This study primarily evaluates the recovery situation of productive assets of the households affected by earthquake in Nepal. In particular, the study will analyze the determinants of assets recovery and test whether assets protection strategies such as the receipt of private transfers and access to factor markets (labor and capital market) can offset the effects of assets shock and thereby help households recover their assets at least to the pre-disaster levels. A quasi-panel data will be constructed by resurveying 30 percent of the households surveyed in Nepal earthquake data collected by Central Department of Population studies (CDPS) at Tribhuvan University.
2019 Shivani Wadehra Ascertaining the costs for collection and recycling of PET bottles between formal and informal sectors and creating appropriate incentives to increase it. India The study aims at determining incentives to increase collection of plastics. The study will assess the costs incurred to the informal sector for collecting post-consumer goods, ascertain the socially optimal recycling rate for recyclables and trace the marginal cost curve (supply curve) of plastic waste collected as a function of crude oil prices.
2019 Mohammad Mashiur Rahman; Niraj Khatiwada Estimating the public preferences for solid waste management and understanding the health effects of exposure to air pollution in Siddharthanagar Municipality, Nepal Bangladesh/Nepal This proposal integrates two research ideas, which are similar in terms of mitigating the risks from environmental hazard. First, this project aims at providing detail and accurate information of household’s participation and their willingness to pay to develop a proper solid waste management model for the Siddharthanagar municipality. Second, this study is also interested in providing detail and accurate information about municipality residents’ respiratory health and their current level of knowledge, awareness, attitude, belief, and behavior towards air pollution. 
2018 Bushra Khan The welfare impact of fish contamination on the community lives in District Swat, Pakistan Pakistan This study aims at determining Mercury levels in humans by assessing its concentrations in human hair samples of fishing communities living along river Swat. These levels will be correlated with fish consumption of these communities and an attempt will be made to estimate the cost of illness incurred on the chronic and acute illnesses due to Hg contamination exposure.
2018 DVP Prasada Design of fishing contracts to reduce over exploitation of Sri Lankan sea cucumber fishery : a choice experiment Sri Lanka This study aims to evaluate a potential management solution to a fast-exploited high value fishery in North West and North East coastal belts of Sri Lanka. The Sea-cucumber fetches a premium price in Asia- pacific markets. But, extraction from the coastal waters is conducted without a planned management regime. What is proposed is a discrete choice experiment to evaluate important attributes which includes attributes of fishing effort and conservation practices.
2018 Mainul Hoque Impact of natural disaster on education outcomes: evidence from Bangladesh Bangladesh The study goal is to investigate the relationship between natural disaster and human capital formation at school. It also aims to track the paths through which flood can impact education outcome such as public examination results as well as school level examination attendance and results. Another specific focus of this study is to find out if students from different socio-economic group (students from extreme poor, for example) are affected from flood in an unequal manner.
2018 Sandip Agarwal A framework to study competing agricultural risk management policies in India India The project seeks to understand the inter-dependence between risk management farm practices and agricultural subsidies. We propose to develop an integrated framework to measure and test substitutability between insurance, fertilizers, and irrigation towards farm risk reduction by exploiting the differences in their respective risk reduction mechanisms.
