Funding for ecosystem services research – Proposals due Nov 30 (2013)

The Ottawa-based think-tank Sustainable Prosperity is awarding grants to student research proposals that advance policy-relevant research focused on market-based policy or regulatory approaches to enhance environmental protection and sustainability. Up to $8000 will be awarded for the research of one student, or $14,000 for two or more students.

A priority research area is markets for ecosystem goods and services!

The deadline for submitting two-page (600 word) proposals is November 30, 2013.  Click here to read more details.  Questions about this initiative should be directed to the Sustainable Prosperity network coordinator Annie Bérubé at

About Eric Miller

I am an Ecological Economist, currently working as a consulting economist and university lecturer. Most of my career has been in the Ontario and federal public service. About half of my work these days relates to ecosystem services: communicating the concept, assessing available information, and proposing ways to integrate the concept and measurement into policies and programs. I earned an MES in Ecological Macroeconomics from York University, a BA in Economics from McMaster University and a BSc in Biology from Carleton University.
