PhD in Environmental Studies and Resource Management

The Resources, Environment and Development (RE&D) program at Crawford School provides theoretically rigorous research training and teaching on contemporary environmental, economic and social transformations in the Asia-Pacific region

The RE&D program has a critical mass of scholars working on issues that matter to governments, businesses and communities in the Asia-Pacific region. RE&D researchers cover areas including environmental sustainability, climate change, rural development, forestry, land tenure, food security, gender inequality, environmental justice, extractive industries and natural resource management.
RE&D Scholars work in disciplines ranging from environmental and ecological economics and policy, political ecology, human geography, and the anthropology of development. This diversity creates an exciting, cross-disciplinary dialogue. We offer PhD students a solid grounding in diverse approaches, methodologies of research, and analytical tools for policy analysis.
