About Gunnar Köhlin

As co-founder of the Environemntal Economics Unit (EEU) I have now spent 20 years working with applications of environmental economics in developing countries. I am currently director of the Environment for Development initiative (EfD), which contributes to poverty alleviation and sustainable development through increased use of environmental economics in developing countries. My research interests focus on environmental resources, development economics and in particular the interface between the two. Methodologically I have a focus on non-market valuation techniques, household production models and broad reviews of existing literature. The applications have been focusing on evaluation of forest interventions in India and Ethiopia. This interest led to a series of papers on domestic energy demand, particularly focusing on India. Currently, my research is focusing on sustainable natural resource management in Africa, particularly adoption of soil conservation and the impacts on productivity in Ethiopia.
