Academic Program

As one priority area of EEPFE is to increase the number of trained environmental economists, EEPFE has very close academic links with the Department of Economics at Addis Ababa University (AAU). We support the research seminar series at this department and most of our research fellows are actively involved in teaching and thesis supervision in the graduate program. EEPFE also provides MSc thesis grants to those doing their thesis in the area of resource and environmental economics.

EEPFE also strives to expand the area of environmental economics throughout Ethiopia. In this regard we have initiated dialogue with various higher learning institutions with a masters level program in economics and/or natural resource management. Our research fellows also lecture at Mekelle University and Hawassa University in Ethiopia. In addition, EEPFE provides books and publication support to these higher learning institutions and plans to also reach newly established colleges and universities.
