Understanding the effects of resource degradation on socio-economic outcomes in developing countries

Research reports

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

‚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.
