Indonesia – COURSE: LFS 302B ( 6 credits)   

May 6 – June 2, 2017

Application deadline:  January 31st, 2017


The undergraduate food and resource economics summer field course (6 credits) in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia consists of instruction, planning and implementation of a performance assessment or monitoring and evaluation (M&E) methodology. The scientific methodology, Monitoring & Evaluation for Timely Responses (METR), uses experiential learning to provide students with an effect tool for independent ex-post development project evaluation used by civil society /NGO, private companies and public sector professionals.

After a week of instruction, two weeks are spent evaluating an actual development project in Indonesia by a team of students led by the instructor. Principles of international resource economics (including analysis of market and policy failures), institutional development (effective harnessing of a broad portfolio of assets – financial, natural, human, knowledge and social), good governance and incremental development are applied. METR measures the right things in the right way at the right time aimed at encouraging positive timely changes in behavior among development project stakeholders, namely, project implementers, project beneficiaries, project designers, and policy makers to bring about reforms that provide better enabling conditions for lasting equitable growth and development.
