The Future of Development and the Environment


  • Seema Jayachandran, Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University 
  • Rohini Somanathan, Professor of Economics, Delhi School of Economics


  • Ranil Dissanayake, Senior Research Fellow, CGD

In the Future of Development series, the Center for Global Development and the Georgetown University Initiative on Innovation, Development and Evaluation (gui2de) bring together development experts, scholars, and policymakers to address the big questions facing developing countries and help shape the agenda in global development over the next decade. 

In this edition, Seema Jayachandran and Rohini Somanathan will join host Ranil Dissanayake to discuss environmental externalities and the future of development. They will focus on how governments (and others) can address the environmental costs of widespread and damaging public and private actions—and how new ways of affecting behavior can have climate and development payoffs.
