Choice Experiments in Developing Countries is an invaluable one-stop presentation of the best-practice case studies implementing the choice experiment method in developing countries. It highlights the theoretical and practical issues that should be taken into consideration when applying this method in a developing country context.
The expert contributors gather recent state-of-the-art choice experiment studies undertaken in several developing countries, in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. These focus on a variety of environmental and agricultural issues, underlining the versatility of this method in valuing a wide array of interventions (for example policies, public and private services, new technologies) and emphasizing the value of the method in informing efficient, effective and equitable policies for sustainable economic development.
This work will be of great interest to academics and researchers of environmental economics, agricultural and resource economics, development, environmental management and planning, as well as national and international development agencies and NGOs. Civil servants and policymakers in developing countries will find the work and recommendations within this book engaging and inspirational.
`Overall, this book is a wide-ranging compilation of choice experiment studies in developing countries. . . we hope that the applications of choice modelling techniques in this volume help convince researchers that asking poor respondents in developing countries complex questions about their preferences is feasible and encourages researchers to tackle more complex research protocols deigned to improve the accuracy and reliability of respondents answers to questions in choice experiments.' -- From the foreword by W.L.
