I am happy to announce that I was awarded a PEI-STEP Fellowship! I will be working in collaboration with Prof. Mauzerall on the influence of policy incentives on the deforestation rate of tropical forests. I will look at decisions taken from the international to the municipal level across three different countries: Brazil, RDC and Indonesia. I will use the Global Forest Change monitor to study land use change and associate decrease in deforestation rates with efficient policy incentives.
The Fellowhsip will cover one year of stipend. To complete the STEP Certificate, I will also have to complete three courses in environmental policy. I am really thankful to PEI for such a great opportunity and I’m looking forward to starting working on my project!
