An Evidence-Based Study of Innovative Anti-Poverty Practices and Market Institutions
This research project conducts empirical microeconomic research to explore the roles of markets, institutions, and technological innovations in poverty reduction. More specifically, we will examine factors underlying spatial rice market disintegration in Madagascar as well as the demand for and impacts of innovative anti-poverty products and practices, including index-based livestock insurance in east Africa, and also ultra-poor microcredit and solar lanterns in rural Bangladesh.
April 2013 - March 2015
