The NZIER Ed Hearnshaw Environmental Economics Award

Ed Hearnshaw

NZIER is delighted to announce the establishment of the NZIER Ed Hearnshaw Environmental Economics Award. This Award of $4,000 has been inaugurated, organised, and underwritten by the Hearnshaw Family and the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research to recognise and encourage the advancement of environmental economics and its applications.

The Award honours the memory of Ed Hearnshaw, a talented environmental economist who died in a tramping accident in 2020.

We are seeking applications from New Zealanders or those working in New Zealand who have produced innovative or outstanding work in the area of environmental economics. Nominations for the Award are open to everyone, including self-nominations. There is no issue if the nominee collaborates with a third-party nominator to complete the application.

Applications are now closed for the 2024 Award.
