Marc Jeuland joined the faculty of the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University in July 2010. His research interests include nonmarket valuation, water and sanitation, environmental health, the planning and management of trans-boundary water resources and the impacts and economics of climate change.
Jeuland's recent research projects include analysis of the economic implications of climate change for water resources projects on transboundary river systems, and modeling of the costs and benefits of environmental health interventions in developing countries. He has managed a field experiment on the role of water quality information in affecting household water and hygiene behaviors in rural Andhra Pradesh, India, and conducted fieldwork on preferences for cholera vaccines in Beira, Mozambique and water treatment in peri-urban communities in Cambodia. He has also worked on evaluation of the sustainability and performance of rural water supply systems in Ghana and Bolivia.
Cost-Benefit Analysis for Health & Environmental Policy
Crosslisted as PUBPOL 607 ENVIRON 563
Course considers the importance of economic analysis, or cost-benefit analysis (CBA), for public policy assessments. Specific focus is on health and environmental policy, and the steps in identification / cataloguing, quantification, and monetization of impacts of potential policies and projects. Covers: Economic rationale for CBA; Basic principles for assessing the economic effects of projects; Techniques for valuing health and environmental impacts; Intergenerational/philosophical concerns related to CBA; Social discounting; Risk and uncertainty; Comparisons of CBA with other approaches (i.e. cost effectiveness analysis, multi-objective analysis).
Course Notes:Formerly titled "Economic Analysis for Environment and Public Health"
Was: GLHLTH 224
MAJOR: Focused Study
Water, Cooperation, and Conflict
Focuses on potential for transboundary water resources-related conflict and cooperation. Discusses water scarcity concepts, natural resource conflict theory, hydro politics, hydro hegemony, water security, water markets and institutions, game theory, and international water law. Other topics include the economics of water and health. Case studies complement the broader course outlook
