Organization: The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity
Based in Geneva
Coordinator of the The Economics Ecosystems and Biodiversity
Salman Hussain is the Coordinator of the The Economics Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB).
Dr. Salman Hussain was a contributing author to the TEEB reports launched in 2010 and has also coordinated the quantitative assessment for TEEB, a global scale study integrating environmental valuation with Geographic Information System mapping.
Previously Salman Hussain was with Scotland’s Rural College, where he directed the University of Edinburgh’s Masters programme in Ecological Economics and headed a team focusing on marine ecosystem economics. In addition to his teaching and administrative duties, he lead the economics work of a European Commission project that married ecosystem service valuation with the bio-physical modelling of the impacts of different use and conservation policy options.
His PhD was on the economics of the ‘greening’ of industry, with a specific emphasis on eco-innovations and eco-labelling, but his research for the past decade has focused on ecosystem and environmental economics.
