Guest Podcast: Food Futures: Playing our Way to Conservation? Experimental Economics in the Andean Countryside

Guest Podcast: Food Futures: Playing our Way to Conservation? Experimental Economics in the Andean Countryside
Special guest podcast from our friends at the Food Futures Podcast
Corinna Howland interviews Adam Gamwell about experimental games, or field experiments, which NGOs and economists use to measure when, why, and how people make different kinds of choices. This data, in turn, is used to inform public policy and generate development projects. As part of Adam’s work in Peru, he ran a series of experimental games with Andean farmers for the NGO Bioversity International, to understand what kinds of incentives farmers would need to conserve threatened varieties of quinoa.
