Marc Jeuland is an associate professor holding primary appointments in the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Duke Global Health Institute at Duke University, and secondary affiliations with the Nicholas School of the Environment and the Pratt School of Engineering.

Marc also holds research affiliations with the Institute of Water Policy at the National University of Singapore and the Rheinisch-Westfalisches Institut (RWI) – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research. 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 (Click here for a narrative summary of his research interests). Marc teaches several courses at Duke including Economics of the Public Sector, Cost-Benefit Analysis for Public Health and the Environment, Water Cooperation and Conflict, and Global Environmental Health.

Marc’s research in the domain of environment and development has mostly focused on South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and includes a mix of micro-level household surveys and experimental or quasi-experimental studies, and systems level modeling, especially to understand the impacts and robustness of water resources projects in transboundary river systems. Besides working with other academics, he collaborates often with researchers and practitioners working in organizations such as the World Bank, USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC). Prior to his graduate studies and work at UNC-Chapel Hill, Marc 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. He holds a B.S. in Engineering from Swarthmore College.

New Data and Technologies are Transforming Energy Access

New Data and Technologies are Transforming Energy Access

Technologies like geospatial imagery, machine learning and affordable batteries are generating ever more innovative ways to target customers with off-grid energy solutions. But according to analysts at the Duke University Energy Access Project, public policy is struggling to keep up with these rapid-fire developments, leaving vast amounts of human capacity and productivity untapped. They explore how to address this disconnect between government and the private sector.

The Energy Access Dividend

The Energy Access Dividend

The Energy Access Project at Duke in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank and Sustainable Energy For All, have developed an Energy Access Dividend for Haiti and Honduras with the aim of quantifying the electrification benefits forgone over a country’s business-as-usual electrification transition.
