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.

Understanding Gender and Energy Key to Sustainable Development Goals

Understanding Gender and Energy Key to Sustainable Development Goals

A new review published in Nature Energy examining more than 100 research articles concludes that despite the profound importance of and commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals for gender equality (SDG5) and universal access to modern energy (SDG7), there are gaps in knowledge about the relationship between gender and energy that could hinder progress toward these goals.

Marc Jeuland receive prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award for 2023-2024

Marc Jeuland will work with leading African scholars at the Environmental-Economics Policy Research Unit (EPRU) and the School of Economics at the University of Cape Town (UCT). His teaching and research will focus on the limited access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa, where 55% of the population lacks electricity, many more have intermittent supply and consume little energy and nearly 80% depend on polluting technologies for lighting, cooking and heating.

Gendered time-use and improved cooking solutions

Gendered time-use and improved cooking solutions

    So far, the case for clean energy has been built around health and/or environmental benefits, generally neglecting the sizable benefits that clean energy can have on freeing women’s time and reducing drudgery. Women typically spend disproportionately more time...
