EfD Network

I currently work as the Director for Academic Programs at the Environment for Development (EfD) based at the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. I’m particularly responsible for coordinating and managing the collaborative PhD programs run by the department of economics, University of Gothenburg, Addis Ababa University and University of Rwanda.

During 2011-2019, I worked as Research Director for the (EfD) Environment for Development initiative. EfD has succeeded in creating a network that provides research and academic capacity building in a broad range of fifteen countries (Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, China, India, Vietnam, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, Sweden, United States) in collaboration with researchers based in more than twenty Universities and research institutions around the world. As the EfD Research Director, I was in charge of administering the EfD research fund, evaluating research proposals and papers, and co-editing the EfD Discussion Paper series together with Professor Peter Berck of the University of California Berkeley.

EfD Discussion Paper Series

Research by EfD researchers and their associates appears initially in the EfD Discussion paper (DP) series. The discussion papers are circulated to the scientific community and interested public worldwide and are available free of charge. The DPs are currently edited by Professor Peter Berck of the University of California Berkeley and Dr. Yonas Alem of the University of Gothenburg. Professional editorial service is provided by International Academic Editorial Services. Submission for the EfD DP series is open members of the EfD network only.
