His main research areas include payment for ecosystem services (PES), common pool resource (forest) management, behavioral economics, agent-based modeling and complexity economics.


Amare earned his PhD from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) in 2018. His PhD study focused on development and environmental economics.

Intuitively, he knew that villagers cannot NOT cut trees as they are highly dependent on forest products.
