Having been in existence for 16 years, supporting capacity-building in environmental and resource economics in Southeast Asia, EEPSEA has given out close to 250 research grants and organized about 50 training courses for more than 1,100 individuals. Key research project areas include agro-environmental policy, water and forest protection, climate change adaptation, biodiversity, inland and coastal water areas and solid waste management, among others.
In its Impact Conference 2010, EEPSEA, a program supported by the International Development Research Centre of Canada (IDRC), the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SiDA) and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), will showcase the impact of studies it has supported as well as the career growth of researchers it has supported and trained. A total of 40 research impact studies, will be presented at the conference by the researchers themselves.
Senior officials from the Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Education of Vietnam will also attend the Opening Ceremony.
According to Richard Fuchs, Regional Director for IDRC’s Southeast and East Asia Ooffice, the skills and perspectives of environmental economics represent a very important fusion of approaches for helping public policy manage and adapt with compelling issues in the region such as climate change.
“ This conference will help to underscore how far this fusion of skills has come in our region over the last 16 years and how they have already had an important impact on decision-making in Southeast Asia,” Fuchs explained.
Experts from the region, USA, and Canada will speak at the conference’s plenary sessions. These sessions will discuss aspects of the world economy and international development, the role of environmental economics research in pollution control, the use of economic instruments in National Resources and Environmental Management in Southeast Asia, state of environmental economics in education and other environmental economics issues affecting the region.
“It is a good time now to assess how EEPSEA’s support has made a difference over the years and what lies ahead” said Herminia Francisco, Director of EEPSEA. “The conference will particularly reveal how research has had a significant policy and academic influence in Vietnam”, she added.
Notes to editors:
As an output of the Conference, an Impact Report will be produced as a sequel to the 1993-1998 and 1993-2000 EEPSEA Impact Reports.About IDRC – www.idrc.ca

Established in 1993, EEPSEA supports training and research in environmental & resource economics. It uses a networking approach to provide financial and technical support to researchers in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, China and Papua New Guinea. Its goal is to strengthen local capacity for the economic analysis of environmental problems so that researchers can provide sound advice to policymakers.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
