Read: EPEE MSc students Energy, Resources and Development blogs
12 May 2021
Here are the best three blogs written by our Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment MSc students on Energy, Environment and Resources in Developing Countries.
Each year, the MSc students who take the module on ‘Energy, Environment and Resources in Developing Countries’ are asked to write a 500-word blog about a topic of their choice. The aim is to provide students with an opportunity to write for a non-specialist audience, and to write about some of the biggest energy and resource challenges faced by developing countries – and the world in general.
Module conveners, Dr Julia Tomei and Jim Watson, explained:
As module leads, Jim and I are always amazed by the diversity of the topics and the quality of the writing. This year, students wrote about everything from women in forest conservation in Mexico to energy security in the Balkans. In this post, we publish the three blogs that received the highest marks and want to say well done to all our students, especially to Matthew, David and Harri!”“
The three best blogs are:
- Tropical rainforests – a hidden victim of the pandemic by Matthew Payne
- Sustainable development: a postcard from Bhutan by David Simms
- Shedding the burden of ‘load shedding’: South Africans may have struck innovation gold by Harri Turnbull
