1. Foster-Moore, Eric. A topography of dams in China : impacts to agriculture, labor, and migration.

Degree: MS, Water Resources Policy and Management, 2011, Oregon State University

Dams are often promoted as a tool to reduce poverty and spur economic development. Dam construction worldwide, and particularly in China, which has built nearly half the world's large dams since 1949, remains contentious due to the potential for negative environmental and socioeconomic impacts. Despite numerous case studies, there is little systematic empirical evidence about either the contribution of dams to human development or their negative impacts to humans and the environment. Identifying the impact of dams also presents a methodological challenge because dam placement is likely endogenous to socioeconomic outcomes. The topographic suitability of a landscape for dam construction provides a source of exogenous variation in dam siting, which, building on the work of previous scholars, I exploit to identify the effect of large dams on agriculture, population change, and labor allocation. My results suggest that dams have decreased grain production in the counties where they were built and have drawn labor into non-agricultural fields. Dams appear to impact population subgroups in predictable ways and create identifiable winners and losers. Advisors/Committee Members: Wolf, Aaron (advisor), Schroeder, Elizabeth (committee member).

2. Pant, Suman. Examining Nepal’s Community Forestry to Understand Opportunities and Barriers to Successful Collective Action.

Degree: PhD, Public Policy, 2016, Oregon State University

Nepal’s community forestry has been internationally recognized as an example of successful case of collective action. However, many scholars argue that although it has been successful in protecting forests from degradation, it has not been able to create an inclusive platform for political decision-making process. Using historical analysis, comparative case studies and social network analysis, this research examines the opportunities and barriers to a successful implementation of community forestry program in Nepal. The results show that when given proper rights and responsibilities, local communities have the potential to successfully protect and manage their resources. However, it was evident that larger political and economic forces influence the locals’ capacity to protect their resources, and existing social hierarchy and inequality continue to marginalize the disadvantaged groups, thus affecting their ability to participate in the decision-making processes. This research argues for a deeper historical analysis as an essential aspect to evaluate collective action, since it provides a context for existing social, political and economic structures. The results of this study are further used to evaluate the discrepancies of theory of collective action, and provide suggestions for theoretical framework for broader implementation. Advisors/Committee Members: Steel, Brent (advisor), Schroeder, Elizabeth (committee member).
