Valuing the Environment: Economics for a Sustainable Future

By David Glover | Go to book overview

Part 3
Pioneers of
Change

As we saw in Part 2, IDRC-supported environmental economics networks have shaped people's thinking about environmental problems, produced useful insights, and improved environmental policies. Equally important are the indirect effects the networks have had through the people they have supported. This chapter focuses on some of the talented individuals who have carried environmental economics forward into new areas, expanding its role in education, the media, and academic literature.

First, however, we look at how the networks have developed the skills of their members. Getting involved in an IDRC network can make a big difference to a researcher's career. The networks provide a great deal of support, tailored to individual needs. They also have tough standards for admission and demand highquality results. It is, therefore, natural that they attract ambitious and dedicated people. By putting high-potential individuals into a supportive environment, the networks have led many researchers into important roles.
