EEPSEA was established in May 1993 to support training and research in environmental and natural resource economics. Its goal is to strengthen local capacity in the economic analysis of environmental problems so that researchers can provide sound advice to policy-makers. Each year, it calls for proposals on environmental economics research from researchers in Southeast Asia and China.
