      We demonstrate a new approach to understanding the role of fuelwood in the rural household economy by applying insights from travel cost modeling to author-compiled household survey data and meso-scale environmental statistics ...
    • Socio-economic status and malaria-related outcomes in Mvomero District, Tanzania. 

      Dickinson, KL; Kramer, Randall A; Randell, HF; Shayo, EH (Glob Public Health, 2012)
      While policies often target malaria prevention and treatment - proximal causes of malaria and related health outcomes - too little attention has been given to the role of household- and individual-level socio-economic status ...
    • The Role of the Private Sector in Protected Area Establishment and Management 

      Kramer, Randall A; Langholz, J; Salafsky, N (Making Parks Work: Strategies for Preserving Tropical Nature, 2002-03-01)
      Most scientists and researchers working in tropical areas are convinced that parks and protected areas are the only real hope for saving land and biodiversity in those regions. Rather than giving up on parks that are foundering, ...
    • Using Contingent Valuation to Estimate the Value of Forest Ecosystem Protection 

      Haefele, M; Holmes, TP; Kramer, Randall A (Forests in a Market Economy, 2003-07-31)
      This book provides a state-of-the-art review of both classical and emerging themes in forest resource economics. The authors show how neo-classical economic principles can be used to analyze forest policy issues across existing ...
