Robinson, Brian

University of Minnesota

I'm currently an research fellow at University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment. I investigate the relationship between ecosystem services, or programs to protect ecosystem services, and livelihoods in developing countries. My most recent field work focused on the impact of management institutions on forest resources and livelihoods in Yunnan, China. My new projects continue to use an economic lens to look at how ecosystem services affect livelihoods and well-being in China and elsewhere.
