The summer school is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany.

The summer school takes place from 11th to 29th of September and consists of three modules. In the first week, participants are introduced to principles of farm economics and resource planning by Dr. Jonas Luckmann and Arndt Feuerbacher from Humboldt-University of Berlin. The second module starting on Monday, 18th of September 2017, builds on the first week and extends the scope to environmental economics. Prof. Dr Christian Lippert and Manuel Narjes from the University of Hohenheim teach methods used to value ecosystem services and apply them to the context of Bhutanese agriculture. The final module starting on Monday, 25th of September 2017, is lectured by Prof. Harald Grethe from Humboldt-University of Berlin and focuses on agricultural policy
Within group assignments, participants present potential policy scenarios related to relevant topics for the Bhutanese agricultural sector such as conversion to organic agriculture, food self-sufficiency, and human-wildlife conflict.
