Ashish Shenoy and ARE Students Present Online at Annual Pacific Conference for Development Economics

April 10, 2020

ARE assistant professor Ashish Shenoy and Ph.D. students, Xiaoman Luo and Daniel Putman, presented at the 13th annual Pacific Conference for Development Economics (PacDev) on March 14. Hosted by UC Berkeley’s Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), this marked the 13th PacDev conference, one of the major annual conferences dedicated to development economics. Due to the coronavirus, this year’s event was an online affair with sessions held via webinar throughout the day. The annual conference is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to come together to present and discuss work that enhances the understanding of economic development, advances theoretical and empirical methods, and improves development interventions and policy.

Professor Shenoy, along with co-author Manaswini Rao, of UC Berkeley, presented a paper titled “Got (clean) Milk? Transparency, Governance, and Incentives for Cleanliness in Indian Dairy Cooperatives” as part of the Local Institutions session. Luo and Putman presented their papers “Does Parental Out-migration Benefit Left-behind Children’s Schooling Outcomes?” and “Risk Preferences and Risk Pooling in Networks: Theory and Evidence from Community Detection in Ghana” respectively in the Education and Risk sessions of the conference.

Previously, UC Davis hosted PacDev conferences in 2018, 2012, and 2007.
