Projects

A principal objective of the project is to develop a novel theoretical framework that would explain the sources of preference uncertainty in stated choice experiments.
This project aims at providing a better insight into the public preferences of the Swiss population for the suggested hydropower expansion.
This project aims at closing the knowledge gap on monetary benefits of river rehabilitation by assessing the economic values of improvements in river ecosystem services resulting from river rehabilitation.
The main objective of this research is to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of water quality improvement through upgrading of wastewater treatment plants in Switzerland.
The main objective is to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of a number of different measures for reducing chemical water pollution in the Mönchaltorfer Aa river basin in the Canton of Zurich.
