Development, Resources and Environment

Picking nettles

Most of my students have come from low income countries and much of our work in the Environment for Development is oriented to understanding how to use the environment sensibly in the context of poverty and poverty alleviation. Some of my research has also dealt with such issues and often the research itself is quite similar to the same research in richer countries but issues of fairness, distribution and institutions such as property rights become somewhat more salient.
