Since I left Australia for working in Vietnam, I have always found myself frustrated not being able to access to online libraries. My university’s library is so out-of-date and not useful at all. Thus, I start listing open access online libraries here in the mean time. You are welcomed to add some more.
Recently I have received many questions from students and research fellows on valuation methods and particularly on Choice Experiment. From searching for them, I realize that I myself don’t have proper learning materials for newbies. Thus, I will start collecting them here.
- TCM: ecosystemvaluation.org (good sample exercise), its lecture note and some more exercises
- Wikipedia (don’t under-estimated it)
- ECON4910 in UiO. I found this particular lecture note worth reading, especially the NOAA on page 14.
- *NYU Stern’s material 1 and materials 2 and labs, data (or data 2) on CE
- List of materials on other valuation methods in Cornell Universtiy
Conferences, meetings and seminars could produce lots of food for research and their materials are worth giving another look. So I think it is nice to save them here.
NEU external seminar 07 Dec 2016: Mr Mai Trong Nhuan’s slides on COP 22 and Vietnam
iPFES Final workshop 27 Dec 2016: all materials
Workshops on System of Environmental Economics Accounting (SEEA)
Training Workshop on the SEEA 20-21 Aril 2017, where I had a lecture on SEEA-W
This framework is applied for Multi-criteria Analysis. This could be an excuse for many conferences, workshops and meetings in Vietnam 🙂
I’m saving some quotes for my thesis here:
Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans. Evo Morales
Some people call it global warming; some people call it climate change. What is the difference? Frank Luntz
There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it. David Attenborough
Your life~the way it looks today is a result of your choices…What will you choose today for your tomorrows? – Robert G. Allen
When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money. – Cree Prophecy
If the wars of [the 20th] century were fought over oil,
the wars of the next century will be fought over water.— Ismael Serageldin, former VP for sustainable Development at the World Bank (Newsweek, 1995)
Water will be to the 21st Century what oil was to the 20th.—Fortune Magazine
