  • Toward Sustainable Coastal Tourism in Costa Rica: Tourism has had a severe impact on coastal areas of Costa Rica, and damage is expected to rapidly increase if development practices are not made sustainable soon. This project will analyze the impact of ecotourism on Costa Rica's coastal parks and protected areas and build a model framework for sustainable tourism development based on future demand. The findings will be introduced to Costa Rican policymakers and researchers through a series of workshops.

    Principal investigator: William Durham (Anthropology).

    Research team: William Barnett (Graduate School of Business), Meg Caldwell (Law School), Rodolfo Dirzo (Biology).

  • Decision Making in Recycled-Water Project Implementation: Water districts in California have been at the vanguard of reclaimed, or "recycled," water use. Based on at least four cases studies from Northern California, this project will examine how scientific uncertainty, economic incentive and regulatory pressures influence decisions to implement water-recycling projects for agricultural irrigation and ecosystem restoration.

    Principal investigators: David Brady (Political Science), Richard Luthy (Civil and Environmental Engineering).

    Investigators: Tammy Frisby (Political Science), Perry McCarty (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Gregory Simon (History and Environmental Earth System Science), Thomas Weber (Management Science and Engineering), Walter Falcon (Woods and Freeman Spogli institutes).
