Death of an eminent Queensland Economist

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Emeritus Professor Clem Tisdell from the School of Economics at The University of Queensland on 14 July 2022.

A Fellow of the Australian Academy of Social Sciences, Clem was one of Australia's leading academics, making significant contributions to environmental and ecological economics and beyond, including a prolific publishing portfolio of research papers, monographs, textbooks and editorial contributions. 

In the June 2022 Repec ranking, he stood in the top 1% of economists of all time worldwide for academic impact. He also made considerable non-academic impact, with advisory positions among others with the IUCN, FAO and the World Bank. He held senior academic leadership positions at the Australian National University, the University of Newcastle, and The University of Queensland, including Dean and Head of School. Clem also held international visiting research positions at Princeton and Stanford universities. He successfully supervised dozens of research students throughout a career that spanned nearly 60 years.

Any academic enquiries may be addressed to Associate Professor Mohammad Alauddin.
