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, modeling of the costs and benefits of environmental health interventions in developing countries, and a variety of survey-based projects focused at the intersection of environment and development. 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.
Jeuland has worked in the past with the World Bank on projects involving economic modeling in the Ganges Basin in Asia, economic planning in the eastern Nile river basin, rural sanitation in Egypt, and wastewater reuse in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
As part of this work,Professor Jeuland recently completed an economic analysis of possible dams in the Blue Nile gorge, for the World Bank (with Dale Whittington at UNC-Chapel Hill). The report, entitled Eastern Nile Strategic Economic Assessment: A Scoping-level Economic Analysis of Multipurpose Dams in the Blue Nile Gorge, examines the economic benefits of the Renaissance Dam, as well as other dam options, to Ethiopia and the downstream riparians. Primary data collection activities were conducted in Sudan to estimate the downstream impacts. The report explores some of the likely implications for basin-wide cooperation of Ethiopia’s decision to build the Renaissance Dam.
Prior to his graduate studies and work with the World Bank, Jeuland was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa, where he designed and monitored construction of a pilot wastewater treatment system and trained management personnel at the plant’s managing firm.
