Our vision is to be a leading policy research center on the economics of climate and environment and a focal point for interactions among researchers, practitioners, policy makers and civil society; and thereby contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable development in Ethiopia.

Areas of contribution

The Environment and Climate Research Centre’s research focuses on policy-relevant research on the economics of climate change, environment, energy, natural resource management and sustainable development in general in the context of Ethiopia. It undertakes real-time impact evaluation of the CRGE implementation. The center’s policy research and impact evaluation program focus on sustainable energy transition, forest management, agriculture, industrialization and green growth, and sustainable urbanization.
