Former Senior Fellow

CV »

Alan Krupnick's research focuses on analyzing environmental issues, in particular, the benefits, costs, and design of air pollution policies, both in the United States and in developing countries. His research also addresses the valuation of health and ecological improvements and, more recently, the ancillary benefits of climate policy and urban transportation and development problems.

National  Malaria Control Programme

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (Tracking Program) in 2002, responding to the need for a central body which would facilitate the collection and analysis of data on noninfectious diseases and integrate the information to understand the linkages between the environment and public health.

The Question

How can natural resource management frameworks inform policies to preserve antibiotic effectiveness and limit resistance?

What We Found

The problems facing those combating antibiotic resistance are similar to problems in managing renewable and nonrenewable resources. Many of the issues, as well as possible solutions, overlap. However, those involved in managing antibiotics face a few field-specific challenges, such as the nature of the health-care industry and the role of hospital infections.

Why It Matters

Approaching the issue of antibiotic resistance from the perspective of economics and natural resource management is a logical, effective strategy that may lead to significant and lasting solutions.

The Question

What is meant by “value of information”? When does information have value? What are state-of-the-practice methods to ascribe value to information?

What We Found

This report presents the results of a workshop on the "value of information," held at Resources for the Future in June 2010.

Why It Matters

Interest in the economic value of information has taken center stage in recent years, as policymakers face the burden of justifying large public investment in data on health and environmental issues.
