For those doing research into conservation and low-carbon economies:

The Economics and Environmental Policy Research Network (EEPRN) is seeking academic research project proposals in the following research areas:

  • Policies for a Low Carbon Economy;
  • Innovation and Competitiveness;
  • Conservation (including species at risk protection);
  • Data Set Development and Linkages;

We particularly encourage proposals in these research areas that feature the use and application of behavioural economics to study expected responses to environmental policy, including regulatory approaches and the use of market based instruments (MBIs). We will also prioritize in the review process those proposals that include specific case studies or empirical analysis of programs in Canada or internationally (that Canada may learn from), as well as proposals for surveys or innovative experimental approaches to evaluate the role of, or advantages to, alternative policy options for the design of environmental policy in any of the proposed research priority areas.
