On September 11-13, PEP researchers Dr. Lulit Mitik Beyene and Dr. Amarendra Sahoo will present their article titled “Economy wide impacts of multipurpose water development in coastal region of Kenya” during the 12th Annual Meeting of the International Water Resource Economics Consortium (IWREC).
This paper results from a special PEP project commissioned by the World Bank to assess the multi-level economic effects of water infrastructure (irrigation and non-agricultural) development in the coastal region of Kenya. Coordinated through the PEP global office in Nairobi, a team of PEP researchers are using a combination of CGE modeling framework and microsimulation techniques to link the economy-wide impact to the distributional and poverty effects of planned infrastructure projects.
The IWREC Meeting will be hosted by the World Bank in Washington, and gather high-level stakeholders around the theme of “Water security in a changing world.”
