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!
They are also keen for research proposals that indirectly relate to ecosystem services, including economic instruments to influence land-use, public attitudes and political economic of market-based instruments.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
