Welcome to the Environment and Climate Research Center
The Environment and Climate Research Center aims to conduct rigorous policy-oriented research on the economics of climate and the environment, undertake impact evaluation of Ethiopia’s Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE)-related interventions, provide evidence-based policy advice, compile and disseminate knowledge and data, serve as a research-policy interaction hub, and contribute to capacity building on the economics of climate change and the environment.The center was officially established on February 23, 2015 and instituted as a special research center within the Ethiopian Development Research Institute (EDRI). EDRI has partnered with the Environment for Development Initiative (EfD) and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to establish the Environment and Climate Research Center (ECRC).
ECRC builds upon EDRI’s long-standing collaborative research program with EfD, the Environmental Economics Policy Forum for Ethiopia (EEPFE), a pioneer project in Ethiopia’s environment and climate policy research.
