Welcome!

My name is Renato Molina, I’m an engineer and economist specializing in environmental and resource economics. My work focuses on topics at the intersection between game theory, sustainability, and institutional settings. I will be available for interviews at the 2018 ASSA Meetings in Philadelphia.

My current research explores the role of common property regimes in the economic impact of natural disasters, the use of conservation strategies to control for competitive incentives in the commons, and the effectiveness of international treaties managing transboundary natural resources. In addition, I am also involved in collaborative efforts studying political incentives for conservation; the use of marine resources for food security; and the relationship between environmental variability, risk preferences, and institutional regimes. The core of my work, however, relies on using economic insight to inform responsible policymaking for environmental and natural resources management.

In addition to my academic work, I am actively involved in consulting activities for both the private and public sectors. My latest efforts relate to technical advice for fisheries reform, as well as technical training for managing agencies in Latin America.
