UC Davis

For A Project On Changes In Rural Household Welfare And Their Implications For Development Policy

The Rural Economies of the Americas Program at the University of California at Davis is a research center devoted to understanding the problems of the Mexican rural sector by collecting data, conducting research, training students, enhancing institutional development, and disseminating critical research findings to policymakers, academics, and the public. In collaboration with a Mexican university, El Colegio de México, the Rural Economies of the Americas Program recently completed the third round of the Mexican National Rural Household Survey. This survey provided detailed information on poverty and welfare in rural Mexico that is comparable over time. A renewal would provide researchers with support to analyze and disseminate findings related to whether rural households have been able to move out of poverty or have fallen into further impoverishment, and how public investments have affected rural welfare at the household and community levels. The results of this research would shed light on how to make government subsidies more responsive to the needs of Mexico’s poorest rural communities.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Policy Institute’s work on electrified transportation  
Housed at the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, the Policy Institute for Energy, Environment, and the Economy conducts research to inform decisions and policies on sustainable transportation, environmental justice, and climate neutrality. Over the duration of this program grant, the Policy Institute will conduct new studies to support regulations of zero-emission commercial trucking fleets, and provide technical expertise in support of low-carbon fuels programs in the U.S. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for the Electric Vehicle Research Center  
This grant supports the work of the Electric Vehicle Research Center at the University of California, Davis. The center collaborates closely with California utilities, automakers, regulators, and other research institutions, such as the Electric Power Research Institute and Argonne National Lab, on research aimed at developing a sustainable market for plug-in vehicles. Its research evaluates the impacts of policies and incentives on consumer purchases, the impacts of consumer driving and charging behavior on the electrical grid, and the role that international collaborations can have on a sustainable and equitable market for EVs in the future. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for California-India Zero Emission Vehicle Policy Collaboration  
This grant support the University of California, Davis to facilitate collaboration between California and India to promote zero-emission vehicles. California’s ZEV program has plenty of lessons to offer to India, and the UC Davis team is ideally placed to do both policy relevant research and to facilitate California-India dialogue on zero emission vehicle requirement policy.
