Resource Allocation and Management

The Resource Allocation and Management Stream of CMVI provides evidence-based research to inform decision-makers about policies and management options for using our scarce resources.

We specialize in identifying and measuring the impact of real-world choices on efficiency and equity. Our work covers local, regional, state, national and international settings and includes analysis of problems related to natural, human and financial resources.

The team uses economics policy and strategic analysis to complement the perspectives brought by other sciences.

We partner with government, business and not-for-profit organizations to address important real-world challenges and contribute towards sustainable and equitable development. 

Examples of areas of work include:

  • Benefit-cost analysis
  • Optimisation
  • Agro-economic modelling
  • Consumer behaviour modelling
  • Non-market valuation
  • Decision support tools
  • Ecological-economic modelling
  • Designing pathways to inclusive development
  • Urban and regional development
