The basic objective of the workshop conducted for the Ph.D scholars pursuing research in environmental economics is to ensure that they get some feedback from the experts on their thesis work.

The useful information about this workshop is that this kind of short-term training programmes would help the research scholars to trace out any specific article that they are not able to get at their university. They can get a copy of the same from the hosting institute or from the co-participating scholars and experts. 

The research scholars will make a brief presentation on their thesis topic (25 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). 

Apart from the presentations by the Ph.D research scholars on their thesis work the workshop would also cover special lectures from eminent experts of the environmental economics field. Followed by a panel discussion in the program.
