The Research Group on Environmental, Natural Resource and Applied Economics Studies (REES) is at the Department of Economics, Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.
REES was created in June of 2015 with the purpose of articulating the research agenda of environmental economists from Colombian Universities and enhancing the visibility of their research results. REES consolidates a group of researchers that belong to the Department of Economics and the School of Management at Universidad de Los Andes, the Department of Political Science, Government and International Relations at Universidad del Rosario, all located in Bogotá, and Geosciences and Environment Department, Decision Science Department, Forest Science Department and the Department of Economics at Universidad Nacional de Colombia at Medellín.

The Department of Economics was one of the first units created in Universidad de Los Andes in 1948. The aim of REES is contributing with policy-relevant research in the following research lines: protection of natural resources, environmental governance, and impacts of consumption and production activities.
