Welcome to ERDELab

The Energy Resources, Development and Environment Lab (ERDELab) uses inter-disciplinary approaches to research problems at the intersection of technology, environment and development. We pursue research with the aim of tackling major issues in this area and developing evidence-based policy recommendations for all stakeholders (e.g. governments at all levels, households, private sector, donors, etc.). Many of our projects explore questions around tradeoffs and decisions that have to be made that balance short and long-term development and environmental goals. In addition to the Principal Investigator, Hisham Zerriffi, the group is made up of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and collaborators from UBC and beyond.
