This paper contributes to the growing literature on energy poverty in developing countries. We use a dynamic probit estimator on three rounds of panel data from urban Ethiopia to estimate a model of the probability of being energy poor and to investigate the persistence of energy poverty. We also study the impact of energy price in!ation,which Ethiopia experienced during 2007–2009, on energy use and energy poverty.We"nd strong evidence of state dependence in energy poverty. A household that is energy poor in one round is up to 16% more likely to be energy poor in the subsequent round.

This study examines the role of Ethiopia’s productive safety net program (PSNP) and its modes of benefit transfer in vulnerability to nutritional outcomes among female- and male-headed households
The present study investigates the effects of combinations of climate smart agricultural practices on risk exposure and cost of risk. We do this by examining the different risk components – mean, variance, skewness, and kurtosis – in a multinomial treatment effects framework by controlling weather variables for key stages of crop growth. We found that adoption of combinations of practices is widely viewed as a risk reducing insurance strategy that can increase farmers’ resilience to production risk.
Strengthening farmer competences to increase climate resilience of cocoa farms: a randomized control trial in Honduras
This research project has as main objective to provide scientific evidence on how empowering farmer's competences reduce their vulnerability to climate change. Around the world, many families
Evaluating Environmental Policies. The Impacts of Stove Programs in Urban Households of Central-Southern Chile.
Air pollution is one of the most important environmental problems in Chile. The government of Chile estimates that 8 million inhabitants are exposed to high fine particulate matter (PM2.5)
The capture fisheries sector is a critical source of animal protein in Africa. In addition, the sector creates jobs, and contributes significantly to agricultural GDP and non-traditional export
