GMV Environmental Economics and Policy Group



GMVs mission is to use science to promote sustainable development within the universities' three responsibilities: research, education and collaboration. GMV’s Environmental Economics and Policy group collaborates with agencies and organizations and provides analysis, assessments, investigations and advice for sustainable development. GMV’s Environmental Economics and Policy group has long experience of research based advice. Since 1991 we have provided advice to Sida, lately formalised and provided via an Environmental Economics Helpdesk, with the overall objective to support integration of environmental and climate change risks and opportunities’ in Swedish development cooperation. Over the years we have also collaborated with organizations like the World Bank, EU, UNDP, OECD, The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and other Swedish government agencies.

Our advisory services include:

• Analytical studies and policy briefs
• Evaluations, assessments
• Methodological development
• Capacity development (e.g. trainings, dialogue)
Our advisory services are commissioned and financed by our mandators and principals. Our group consists of a core team of five environmental economics specialists. The work is often conducted in collaboration with colleagues at the Environmental Economics Unit (EEU), the Environment for Development (EfD ) centers, the GMV network and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala (primarily through Sida’s Helpdesk for Environment and Climate Change), or in collaboration with other actors.
