Research Interests: environmental economics

Randall A. Kramer is a professor of resource and environmental economics in the Nicholas School of the Environment and the Department of Economics at Duke University. Before coming to Duke in 1988, he taught in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. He has also held visiting positions at IUCN-The World Conservation Union, the Economic Growth Center at Yale University, and the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry. He has served as a consultant to the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and other international organizations. His research focuses on ecosystem valuation, water resource economics, and the economics of biodiversity and natural resource management in developing countries. Current research projects include studies of (1) deforestation, malaria and household behavior; (2) farmer participation in wetlands restoration programs, and (3) new methods for pooling estimates of the value of prevented mortality.
