June 1977 to present, Senior Fellow and Director of the Forest Economics and Policy Program, Resources for the Future, Washington, D.C.
The Forest Economics and Policy Program is located in the Energy and Natural Resources Division of RFF. As Program Director, has been responsible for the direction, administration, coordination, and fund-raising of the FEPP of Resources for the Future since the program's inception in 1977. The program has a professional staff of 2-3, including visiting researchers and consultants. The principal activity of the program is public policy research in forestry and related areas, leading to the publication of books, articles and reports. Major research efforts involve research on domestic and international forest policy, global environmental problems, especially as related to forests, including carbon and global warming and biodiversity, long-term timber supply, international trade in forest resources, international forest resources, multiple-use and ecosystem management of public forests, and the economics of nonindustrial private forests. Other facets of the Program include the sponsorship of conferences, workshops and symposia, lectures, testimony before Congressional committees, and an educational program.
The Forest Economics and Policy Program has a budget of $400,000 -$500,000 annually. Funding has been largely external since the program’s inception. Fundraising is primarily the responsibility of the director, although significant funding is provided from RFF general support. Financial support over the years for the program and for individual projects has come from a variety of public and industry sources. These include the US Department of Agriculture, USDA Forest Service, EPA, DOE, World Bank, NOAA, USAID, the Ford Foundation, the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation, and a number of forest industry firms and associations.
September 1973 to June 1976 Associate Professor of Economics (tenured), Utah State University, Logan, Utah
Principal activities involved teaching and research. Specialized in international development and resource economics.
1972 to August 1973, Program Economist, Asia Bureau, Agency for International Development, Department of State, Washington, D.C.
Duties included the assessment and evaluation of existing and proposed AID programs in Asia and monitoring and assessing the overall economic and balance of payments situation of particular countries. Active in a troubleshooting role related to existing program problems. In this role evaluated and reported on the Provincial Development Program in the Philippines, the Helmand River Project and the proposed Financial Development Program in Afghanistan, and the On the Farm Water Program in Turkey.
1970 to 1972, Economist, U.S. Agency for International Development, Seoul, Korea.
Principal duty was as technical advisor to the Economic Planning Board (EPB) of the Republic of Korea for the construction of the Third Five-Year Economic Development Plan, l972-l976. The major task involved working with the EPB on the construction of the sectoral input-output model utilized in the Plan. Additional duties involved working with the Korean government on the creation of the Korean Development Institute and assisting the AID Mission in various types of economic analyses, particularly involving balance of payments, debt servicing, economic growth potential, and project evaluation.
