EEPSEA Regional Training on Experimental & Quasi-experimental Methods for Environmental Economic Topics

Vung Tau, 9 – 17 December 2019

The first part of this course will provide an overview of quasi-experimental methods for causal inference in environmental and resource economics. Participants will learn the basics of econometric methods such as difference-in-differences, event studies, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity and matching. The training will focus on practical implementation in applied settings.

In the second part, the course provides students with an overview of the experimental literature that addresses issues in environmental and natural resource economics and will prepare students to design and run their own economic experiments.

EEPSEA Regional Training on Science Communication Workshops

Online, 4 August – 14 September 2021

A series of online Science Communication Workshops was conducted to achieve one of the goals of Economy and Environment Partnership for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA) in developing the capacity of researchers to effectively communicate with policymakers in the region. EEPSEA partnered with Econnect Communication together with Economy & Environment Group of the Philippines to organize the training which consisted of five interconnected modules as follows: 1) Planning Communication, 2) Pitching, 3) Writing a Policy Brief, 4) Presenting, and 5) Using Media and Social Media.

EEPSEA – IIASA Training Workshop on Water Resources Management: Climate and Socioeconomic Change Adaptation in Transboundary Basins

Online, 12 – 14 – 21 October 2021

This 3-day workshop will strengthen participants’ knowledge on development and use of models and systems analysis approaches, to better understand current and future issues surrounding water resource management under climate change involving climate, hydrological and economic modeling tools. The workshop also involved a mixture of presentations, practical ‘hands-on’ sessions with selected models, in order to place the work in the Southeast Asian region and its specific circumstances. The workshop was facilitated by researchers from International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA)

Regional Training on Transdisciplinary Approaches toward the Net-zero Target – Call for Applications

Hybrid, 17 – 18 August 2022

This 2-day workshop will provide researchers in the Southeast Asia Region with the understanding of technical roadmaps and policy instruments, then the applications to develop their research agenda on the net-zero targets in their country or region. In addition to the technical, economic and political opportunities and challenges to reach the target of net-zero, the large-scale collective action, individual preferences for net-zero policies, and potential research topics will also be discussed during the workshop.
