Research report

Written by Dirk Willem te Velde, Marie-Agnes Jouanjean, Josephine Tucker

Research report

‚ÄčThe links between the environment and the economy have risen on policy and academic agendas. This paper scopes out the linkages between resource degradation and socio-economic outcomes, focusing on land and water degradation. The socio-economic impact of resource degradation depends on direct transmission mechanisms and the ability of producers and consumers to follow mitigation strategies.
