Environment for Development

EfD

Gothenburg, Sweden

The Environment for Development initiative aims to support environmental economics capacity, better environmental management and thereby reducing poverty in developing countries, by conducting research, academic training and policy outreach. The EfD, started in 2007, is currently funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and builds on the environmental capacity building program that Sida has been supporting at University of Gothenburg since 1991. The EfD research emanates from the policy priorities of the host countries. This has led to a research focus on natural resources, and the research-policy impact is increasing. The EfD way is to build strong long-term collaborations with key ministries, decision makers, and relevant stakeholders.
