Marc A. Jeuland

Associate Professor in the Sanford School of Public Policy

Marc Jeuland is an Associate Professor in the Sanford School of Public Policy, with a joint appointment in the Duke Global Health Institute. His research interests include nonmarket valuation, water and sanitation, environmental health, energy and development, 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, and modeling of the costs and benefits of environmental health interventions in developing countries. He has worked on multiple field experiment on issues such as: the role of water quality information in affecting household water and hygiene behaviors; the demand for, and impacts of cleaner cookstoves on household well-being; the long-term sustainability and effects of rural sanitation and water supply projects. He has also conducted fieldwork on preferences for a range of environmental health improvements including cholera vaccines, household water treatment technologies and improved cookstoves.

Jeuland has worked in the past with the World Bank, USAID, the Millenium Challenge Corporation, UNICEF, and many smaller field-based NGOs and implementing organizations.

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.
