Agarwal receives Leontief Prize from Tufts University

Posted on June 28th, 2010 by

Bina Agarwal was named one of the 2010 winners of the Leontief Prize, given by the Global Development and Environment Institute of Tufts University. “The Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought recognizes economists whose work, like that of the institute and Leontief himself, combines theoretical and empirical research that promotes a more comprehensive understanding of social and environmental processes.  Presenting the award, GDAE’s co-director Neva Goodwin remarked that “coming from two different directions – from inside and outside the field of economics – [this year’s award recipients] have each contributed significantly to widening and refreshing the field.”

Agarwal’s acceptance lecture discussed the potential for the world to feed itself sustainably.
